Retreating..

 Next weekend I will attend my first writer's retreat. Stephen King, in his book on writing, mentions that he believes retreats are a waste of time. I don't know if this will turn out to be true. We'll have to wait and see. I'm looking forward to writing time, critiques with fellow writers and hopefully a fair amount of laughing.

I've already learned a great deal from the other writers that comprise the Central Ohio Fiction Writers group. It's a chapter of the Romance Writer's of America, which is great since my young adult novel ideas are all are romantic. The Time Keeper's Daughter is a new twist on Romeo and Juliet.

I think the picture below, from a trip I took to Spain, is appropriate for "retreating..."

More to come after the retreat!
