I’ll be back today from the NOLA conference in Shreveport some time today, but in the meantime, let me share pics from my adventure in Granite, Oklahoma last month.
Yes, it was all about work. Hard work. See the plotting charts taped to the walls. They looked like crude wallpaper by the time we were done. Here’s my sister taking a break next to Di Dishman and Karen Kelley (Brava author).
This is our hostess, Julia, on the left and a couple more of the bootcampers hard at work. I’m sure they thought the weekend would be a big slumber party, but we disabused them of that idea quickly!
Okay, the weekend wasn’t all work. The ladies treated my sister and I to a couple of lovely meals away from the retreat house. This is the lodge at nearby Quartz Mountain Nature Park.
The scenery in that part of Oklahoma was unexpected. I love the rugged landscape—just wished I could have taken a day to explore on foot.
I can only imagine how gorgeous it would be in springtime. Sounds like another field trip to me!
I think the picture of the water would make for a good setting for a book.
When was this? I know nothing about it. *pout* I might’ve made the trip for a writing bootcamp!
I think it would too. But I see a historical in that landscape.
Like you’re ready to plot another book?! Ever? You’re an inveterate pantser! 😛
But I would enjoy hanging around all you plotters and trying to absorb some plot skills by osmosis. LOL
I’m great at brainstorming. But I admit, once I actually plot out a story, I lose all interest in actually writing it. FOr me, the fun part is writing it and being surprised by what happens. LOL
I’m with you, Sasha, but I get very, very stressed when the story doesn’t come. I like to have an inkling.
Wow–great photos, Delilah! And it sounds like it was incredibly productive as well as fun!
