Authors' Retreat is Nigh


Yesterday I wrote the final crisis/climax scene for my manuscript, Deceit, due at the end of this month. The only thing left is to write is the epilogue/resolution scene(s). I completed what I'd intended to write just in time. Tomorrow my author retreat friends come, staying until Monday.

We say during this annual long weekend that we "plot, play and pray." We'll spend half the days in plotting sessions--each author gets one hour and fifteen minutes and hopefully leaves with a plotted book. The rest of the day we play, break into small groups to brainstorm some more, maybe go out in the boat, and just hang out. We also pray together, not only during the retreat, but all year long, connected through an email loop.

I may not blog tomorrow but will post some pictures of the weekend on Monday.
