Great writing minds meet in Missoula
We met, we ate, we drank wine. There was much laughing and sharing and talking about sundry matters having nothing to do with writing.
Then we got down to business. We brainstormed a title for one member, talked about where to place a manuscript that had been written for a line that no longer exists, brainstormed killing methods for a mystery (did you know that rhododendrons stems are extremely poisonous), considered a creation myth prologue for a paranormal, tested an alternate opening and changed four-inch stilettos for five-inch stilettos.
Whew! It was a good five hours of solid work (really--ignore all the giggling, we were working!) And it was great fun (note previously mentioned giggling).
Ah, the joy of just hanging out with other writers!
