There was a nice article about our need for a place to retreat to and write in that appeared in Poets & Writers magazine a few years back titled "Cabin Fever: My Own Private Walden Pond." Here's a link: http://www.pw.org/content/cabin_fever_my_own_private_walden_pond?cmnt_all=1).

I created a writing cabin of my own in the artists' community of South Whidbey Island in Washington State and rent it out to those who need to get away to focus on their work. That turns out to be more people than you'd think. In a survey conducted by the Jenkins group, 81% of Americans say they'd like to write a book someday. The urge to express ourselves in writing seems universal. So does our yearning for a place in which to do it. http://www.writersrefuge.com
