If you’ve wondered in from Brenda Margriet’s wonderful blog or are starting your tour with me, hold on to your hats because today we’re going on vacation to some wonderful writers retreats.


This week I asked the group to: Describe your perfect writing retreat.

I think of a writers retreat as a working vacation, and my perfect writing retreat would include a number of key elements.
1. A group of avid, romance writers.

Nothing gets the creative juices flowing like interacting with other creative people, and romance writers are the best kind of people. We all have a group of crazy characters talking to us in our heads, and wherever two or more are gathered, there will be shop talk.

2. A comfortable unique gathering space.

It can be a cabin in the woods, a beach front tropical resort, or just a nice hotel. It’s preferably a place I haven’t been before. A new place to explore is great for inspiring a new scene in whatever I’m writing.

3. Good food.

Whether ordering in a good restaurant or choosing from a catered buffet, sharing a dining table with a group of romance authors is always fun and inspiring.

4. Wine.

Red wine, cheese, walnuts, olives, pomegranate and bread
Come on, you knew this was next, and it really should be self-explanatory.

5. Some inspiring speakers.

Maybe that best-selling author, or an editor from a popular publishing house. Someone who is ‘there’ and doesn’t mind sharing their experiences.



So, where is my next writers retreat? The 2015 Write Touch Conference April 24-26 in Milwaukee, WI.

Yeah, I’m stoked.
