We plot books together!
Sometimes in big groups, sometimes in smaller groups. One of my favorite things to do is brainstorm with other folks. There is nothing more amazing than putting together a bunch of creative minds and seeing what will happen. I’m lucky to be involved in a vibrant writing community. While I have a regular critique group I meet with, I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to meet with other groups.
Storytelling is storytelling and it doesn’t much matter what genre someone is writing. While there are certainly idiosyncrasies within the different genres, the basics don’t change. Sometimes it takes a new perspective to put everything into..well…perspective!
Recently I meet with Renee Ryan, Victoria Alexander and Louise. It was an all day session and we were all brain dead by the evening! You’re probably looking at the gorgeous house in the background. Victoria lives in a beautiful historic home with stunning details. It’s the perfect place to find inspiration. We watched the snow fall through lace curtains and enjoyed lunch in a stunning, renovated kitchen. We also got some work done as well 🙂
Do you have a group you meet with on a regular basis? Quilting, knitting, book club? Tell me about your favorite get together.
