Brainstorming, and Laughing and Writing Oh My
Every year a group of romance writer friends and I rent a house by a lake and brainstorm books together. We help each other if we are stuck on a problem or come up with plot points that we wouldn’t think of on our own. When this started we would come up with ideas for 30 books, now we’re happy if we’ve managed to brainstorm 15. Sadly, or not, we are having too much fun to discuss just books. It is a time to get together and talk with authors who love to write, women who love romance and folks who can appreciate a good laugh. We came up with ideas for future westerns, erotica, light comedy and a whole lot more. I even left with a better idea of how to make my latest story work—thanks ladies. Of all my writer-friend get togethers, this is the one I look forward to the most. Things over heard at brainstorming you might ask—hey, why is that guy bathing in the lake, can sex robots be self-lubricating and what is dinosaur romance (yes, you read correctly, dinosaur romance)? If you write, or even if you don’t, I highly recommend getting away with friends to discuss the mysteries of the universe (and dinosaur sex).
