Author-friendly Writing Retreat by The Lake

Nestled between the towering Northern Pines and misty Squaw Lake lies Minocqua's best kept secret, Birch Trail Resort. A writer's paradise, this location lends itself to visits from your muse with its peaceful, natural surroundings and rich display of wildlife. Just one gaze into the star-filled night sky has the potential to inspire the next best-selling novel or influential research paper!

With the number of authors and book writers in Wisconsin on the rise, gaining a competitive edge is necessary to landing the next big hit. Three modern studies actually prove that getting rest and taking part in rejuvenating activities can lead to higher levels of productivity and increased focus, necessary tools when writing.

First, a study done on walking outside in nature was shown to increase an individual's ability to creatively think both immediately after the walk and hours later. Napping for just 20 minutes has been shown to boost "your ability to concentrate by giving your brain a chance to restore depleted energy."(source)

Finally, a study on deep, restful sleep (like the kind you are likely to get while on vacation in Wisconsin...hint hint), allows our bodies to "devote themselves to storing energy, fixing or replacing damaged cells, and growing, while our brains clean out toxins, process the day’s experiences, and sometimes work on problems that have been occupying our waking minds."(source)

What better way to clear your thoughts, spark creativity and regain focus than to visit Birch Trail Resort offering trails to walk and cozy, plush beds to rest on. Even better, bring your entire writing group to share in the experience!
