|Early morning at Wampler's Lake|
So far this year, we've helped Harlequin Superromance author Kristina Knight plot her next story, as well as Rue Allyn. Today we're focusing more on brainstorming (as opposed to the wild partying) and having a brief organizational meeting.
Every year, we all bring carloads of food and vow that next year we'll remember not to bring so much next year.
If you're a member of a writing group, does your group ever do weekends like this? If not, think about it. Renting the house costs us ±$50 apiece, plus whatever food and beverages we bring. A fraction of what I paid for RWA in New York City.
If you're not a member, what do you do to keep the writing spark alive? I noticed last night at the campfire that a piece of wood that falls too far outside the flames might catch fire for awhile, but eventually burns out. Getting together occasionally with author pals keeps the sparks flying even at those times when Life attempts to douse the embers.
