Writer's Retreat Weekend

Okay, I know it's been awhile, but I sold a book to Steeple Hill on proposal, so that means some serious writing to live up to their faith in me...and so they'll buy more! But, I just wanted to share this really cool weekend I just got back from. A group of us got together for some brainstorming and boy, did we storm! We stayed in a gorgeous house up in the mountains of Franklin, NC. We were so far up, I got altitude sickness. No, I'm not kidding. I started feeling much better about the time we had to leave, of course. We were 4,000 feet up there! But it was fantabulous and we sincerely thank http://www.staugvacations.com/ and the Hartley family for allowing us to enjoy their home.

Some silly people tried to enjoy it 24/7 by staying up until 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning working!!! Steeple Hill and Zondervan editors, you should be proud! No, I'm not mentioning any names, Camy Tang, Missy Tippens, Jennifer Hudson, Cheryl Wyatt and Pammer James! I was the only one with any sense, obviously. No, I think Pammer had some, too. I remember her going to bed around midnight one night.
For example:

Anyway, all kidding aside, we had a blast and plan to do it again next year! Here's some pics. Enjoy!

The fun part of stopping in the local Christian bookstore in Franklin, NC and watching Camy very humbly sign her newest release, Sushi for One? The bookstore staff were so sweet and...I think, bemused with the whole thing...

This is the six of us trying to get in the picture before the timer on the camera went off!

I certainly had fun and have some material to work with now.

I can't wait to do this again. Thanks for sharing the pics. (Don't forget to send them to me.) :)

I had a wonderful time! Can't wait to go again. I'm already hard at work with the brainstorming ideas.

Okay, my first post didn't make it. Blogger doesn't like me today. :) I'll try again.

I'm still so tired from the trip! Those late night wore me out. LOL But I had a blast. Thanks, Lynette, for setting it up!
