I attend a women’s only writers retreat twice a year. The spring retreat took place last weekend. It is worth every penny of the fee. I learn something new during each retreat through the course of conversation with other writers. Sometimes I learn new things each day.
I was visiting with Marty Knox, who is the author of Murder @ the Black Mesa Cafe, and she mentioned her storyboards on Pinterest. I asked some questions, so she showed them to me. She has a storyboard for each of her books.
I’m in the middle of heavy edits on my first book, Legacy of Secrets. There’s a major subplot that has been bothering since I wrote it. Removing it will change my book in a significant way. I need to replace this subplot with something equally powerful, or my story will fall apart. Gathering photos that represent people and scenes in Legacy of Secrets into one place makes it much easier for me visualize and plot.
That’s the beauty of spending four days completely immersed in our writing. We all came away a little wiser and with our creativity revved and ready for the next chapter.
