Sara, Lauren, Susan, and Ann - fellow writers discussing word issues.Trinity Writers' Workshop normally meets on Saturdays at the Trinity Arts Building in Bedford, Texas. However, this past Saturday we met at the home of long-time member Bonnie Pemberton for a plot party. Twenty-four people attended with twelve people offering up a synopsis of their writing issues and questions they asked us to ponder.
Who died first - the wimpy husband, the heiress, or the gardener? Who is the murderer? What about that strange woman in the store - was her question part of a cult? Bats? Electricity? The Amazon Trilogy. All this and more was discussed as ideas begat ideas and the author in question furiously jotted notes.
Food, oh the food - we ate well, snacked some more, and enjoyed Clarice Bostick's homemade ice cream cake (her secret is the amaretto). Laughter prevailed.
An offsite plot party is a great way to renew a group's energy. It's loosey-goosey and the only limitation is the imagination.
Look out publishing world - there are some interesting stories headed your way in the future.
