Wild Wild Weekend

There was a plotting party.

A wild and raucous group of writers stealthily converged at a mobile home hidden deep in the Quartz Mountains.
(Only Jo and Tammy -- who had yet to arrive at the time of this photo -- can tell you how deeply hidden)

Blood was spilled, bodies buried, aliens sighted, and hot sweaty sex was everywhere. I can't disclose more or I would have to kill you.

It was sworn in blood and sealed with a spit-in-your-palm handshake, "What happens at the trailer, stays at the trailer."

I'm sorry I missed it. Looks like a lot of fun. I had to spend time with my family this weekend. I'll be at the August recap, tho-- thrilled to be back at Penn Square!

The pic is great. I just love seeing Shelia smiling.

Forget New York. All the fun seems to be happening in Oklahoma. Mayhem, murder, aliens, sex. That's the kind of party I've dreamt of going to all my life.

So are you guys each writing separate works of fiction? Are you planning to make an anthology of short stories? Or are you going to make one community novel?

Sounds really exciting.

Hi Dell,
We're all writing seperate works of fiction. We each were given a block of time when the group would help us with whatever you needed. It could be brainstorming bad stuff that could happen to the H/H or motivation issues, or working out timelines. You could start with something that was already fairly developed or throw out something that wasn't developed at all. Mine was 2 paragraphs I'd written as a writing exercise once and had always wondered what kind of story it could lead into.

The party was a lot of fun, lots of laughter, lots of food, lots of stories. Weekends don't get much better.

I'm so glad I didn't miss the Ploting Party. It was worth driving 5 hours to get from OKC to the Quartz Mountain Lodge to find a guide to take me to the "party".

I took a mind picture I had when I woke up Fri morning and when my hour was finished I had a book everyone liked. A Beginning, middle and end, with a Heroine and hero.

I was glad to help the others develope the nack of love on paper.

But as Betty said "What happened at the trailer stays at the trailer.

Have to wait until it is published.

Julia rolled out the red carpet for us, we had more food than we could eat, and I laughed more than I have in months.

It was great getting to know these ladies. Can't wait til our next meeting.

I'm working on Deep Breaths so I can get it finished and start On A Clear Day.
