I might as well admit defeat now. When it comes to Comment Wars, there's no competing against JoAnne's cute baby! But I did snap some fun pictures during the writers' retreat and booksigning event I attended in Hardy, Arkansas, this past weekend. I arrived home after midnight last night, so when the alarm went off at 5 a.m., I fought hard against the urge to send the offending device flying and snuggle back under the covers for a few more hours of ZZZZZs.
The weekend fun proved well worth the Monday morning suffering, though. We all hope to make this an annual event. I love those occasional forays back into the writer's life. And I came home excited about the plot my friends helped me brainstorm. That nasty ol' writing bug still infects my system! I don't think there's a cure.
By the way, if any of you writers out there are looking for a fabulous retreat/escape, I highly recommend The Old Stone House B&B in Hardy, Arkansas. (http://www.oldestonehouse.com)Everything about this quaint village is conducive to writerly inspiration!
