I thought I would share a few pictures from the two writers retreats I held last week, since I do believe that a picture is worth a thousand words.
Agent Alex Slater and Agent Linda Epstein out on the porch listening to first pages.
Bettelynn McIlvain and Julie Phend after first page session.
Carol MacAllister, Angela Larson, and Jody Staton discussing writing.
Virginia Upton, Lois Roe, and Susan Amesse enjoying the discussion and the beautiful day.
After dinner fun with a game of Quiddler. Left to right: Angela Larson, Jody Staton, Linda Epstein.
Alex Slater, Susan Amesse, Julie Phend trying to come up with a winning hand.
Angela Larson and Jody Staton. Looks like Jody’s praying for better cards.
The second session was all in doors, since the weather turned bad with hurricane Joaquin stirring up trouble down in the Bahamas. This was the authentic Indian cuisine that Sindhu Vijayasarathy cooked for us. Yum!
Ann de Forest, Sharon Sorokin-James, Sindhu Vijayasarathy, Agent Mare Lamba.
Dianne Warner, Agent Scott Treimel, Virginia Upton enjoying the company and the food.
Karen Haas and Dee Falvo enjoying each other and celebrating good critiques, while cleaning up the kitchen.
Chris Friden enjoying a beer with Sindhu after teaching all of us Scrivener. If you need someone to teach your writer’s group of SCBWI Chapter all the ins and outs of Scrivener, Chris is your guy.
And a little pumpkin carving by Dee Falvo to add more atmosphere to the howling wind and rain pelting the windows. The frightful weather could not dampen our spirits. We hunkered down with good food, good wine, and worked unstop on our manuscripts.
