Sorry I've been absent, but I've been hanging out with these lovely ladies:

It was so fun to be surrounded by writers and get to talk "shop" for three days. We also did other things, like this:

And we ate. Boy, did we eat. Michelle and Natalie volunteered to be our chefs and fed us well. The last night we had a campfire and Candi's dad had us in laughing tears as he acted out some stories. (I see where Candi gets her crazy from.) :) Then Renee and my daughter and Natalie's sister had us screaming with some scary stories. It was so much fun.

So now I'm home and refreshed and motivated and ready to write!


  1. Now, that looks like a fun retreat! Hooray for being charged up and ready to write!

  2. YAY!! Sounds like you had LOTS of fun!! :D

  3. YAY, the retreat! So so so so much fun. :)

    And seeing that pic, I'm so glad we survived the four wheeler ride. ;)

  4. Sounds fun! Love the pictures!

  5. I missed the ghost stories, but Natalie and I had our own bug-free little conversations. OK, so it wasn't bug-free, but maybe better than being outside? :)

  6. Linda, Hooray indeed. :)

    Monica, so much fun.

    Ruth, very true.

    Renee, me too! I rode the other four wheeler the next day and lets just say I didn't realize how much danger you were in until I rode the better vehicle. lol

  7. Julie, thanks. It was a blast.

    Michelle, I won't tell you then that there were more bugs in the house than there were by the fire. lol
