I still exist!

There was no writing happening all summer, so no entries.

Actually, I haven't had enough to time to keep up with this blog and my LJ. It is true that I haven't worked on anything all summer long. But the good news is, I have a new idea in the works and the words will be back shortly.

Barb, a member of my writing group, introduced us to novel bashing, which is plot brainstorming. I offered my idea to The Yetis and we bashed so there is a workable plot and some character development. This new idea is woman's fiction and doesn't contain any paranormal elements. It feels weird, yet at the same time "right." I do believe it is possible to write well in several genres and I don't think we pick the stories we tell.

The next two months are going to be busy, with NaNo prep and a writing retreat. I volunteered to Co-ML again. (probably my last year) I'm more excited about the retreat. Two days in a cabin in the woods doing nothing but writing. Bliss! (I'm sure there will be a bit of drinking and merry making since it is a Yeti sponsored event)

Thanks to everyone who stuck with me through the long silence. I promise to not wait so long in the future.
