I just finished working with my editor on Breathe, and we’ve sent it off for line edits and proofing. Perfect timing too because I’m spending today and the rest of the weekend at a writing retreat with a group of fellow romance writers who are some of the most creative, fun people I’ve had the privilege of hanging with. Today we are all writing and doing a bit of brainstorming. Tomorrow is our meeting and a full day of brainstorming to help each other with plot points and new story ideas.
I need weekends like this. I spend a lot of time in my writing cave, and it’s good for me to send time with others who know what it means to be a writer. Who get why I’m crazy sometimes. Who get the need to spend hours working on rewriting chapter 1. Who understand my dreams and disappointments.
Here are a couple of quotes already heard during the first half of the day:
“I can’t help it if your crack was in my face.”
“artificial immaculate insemination”
“We should have brought a blow up doll.”
I’m getting a little worried. Who knows what will happen once we dip into the booze.
Have a great weekend!
