This part of the Blue Ridge is called the Lost Provence.  The motto of our nearest town (of 182 people) is: “This is not the end of the world but you can see it from here”.  That means Merrily Farms is at the end of the world… isolated… nurtured in nature… serene… a perfect place for creativity.

Welcome to Little Horse Creek… where it is…

always quiet and peaceful and relaxing.

In times that so many perceive as tumultuous, inspiration becomes even more valuable and important in business.  The news on the internet, in the papers and on TV are so filled with negativity that it can be catching. In such eras, those who see positive realities gain an extra edge.  This is the place where you leave all this behind and learn how to write or increase and enjoy what you have written.

Improve your writing as you enjoy the peace and beauty of the Blue Ridge… as Merri and I have at our Writer’s Camp.

Our writing career allows us to live part time at our remote North Carolina farm on Little Horse Creek.

Get away from the gray humdrum… go where your horizons expand.

There is inspiration in “them thar hills”.  Seek it.  There has never been a better time for a micro business and an upbeat outlook on life.

One kind reader sent me two coffee mugs recently, enamel bumper stickers if you like, that said “Ille Gitimati Noli Carborundum.”

The translation is “Don’t let those who are illegitimate wear you down”.  Refresh… rejuvenate and learn with us at Merrily Farms.

Look for inspiration in your passions.  They may lead you to strange places… in the minds of the humdrum herds.  Yet success is waiting for you in the nooks and crannies where others do not go.

There are limited accommodation facilities for some delegates to stay on the farm. For details contact Merri at merri@garyascott.com

We look forward to begin sharing writing and publishing now that leads up to the Writer’s Camp in July on the farm.
