I’m so excited. Today is the day I depart for my brainstorming retreat. This is the 12th annual retreat for this special group of writers. I’ve shared photos in the past and no doubt will share photos again, although I may not be first. Tamera and Tricia are also part of this “Plot, Play, & Pray Retreat.”
Whenever I’m asked what is my favorite part of writing, my answer is “Brainstorming!” There is something remarkably energizing about sitting around a table with nine other writers, ideas being tossed around left and right.
I love that we write so many different genres and sub-genres. For instance, I don’t write suspense. I even feel confident enough to say I will never write suspense. Just not my thing. But I love getting to brainstorm suspense novels for the authors who do write them. It’s stimulating. It forces me to think in a different way.
This retreat also comes at a great time for me, because I will soon be starting a new story. So now I am off to collect as many ideas as possible.
