Plotting Bootcamp Rocked!!

The bootcamp was so awesome! I just wish we could have had a few more Diamonds there. Member Julie Linker was a fabulous hostess and Mary/Myla/Elle led us through the entire process with *relatively* little pain. I am beat ass tired, but walked away from the camp with my first YA novel entirely plotted!

Now, all I have to do is write the thing...starting tomorrow bcause today...a nap is definitly on the agenda during the Roo's nap. It's been a long time since I stayed up so late, or got so little sleep, but it was worth it. Every Diamond needs to make it a goal to attend our next Diamond bootcamp.

Thanks to Julie for her hospitality and thanks to Shayla and M/M/E for joining me on my first bootcamp...and okay, I'll admit it, my first time to actually plot! I'm a pantser, but after this weekend, I just might be a convert.

No kidding! It was soo much fun getting to know Julie and Stacey (I already knew Shayla and she's terrific). We laughed a lot, talked a lot and plotted like madwomen. We all came out richer by a new plot and learned so much along the way. Thanks, Julie for offering your home. It was wonderful!

I AM SO JEALOUS. I wanted to be there so bad! Maybe we can give it another shot at a later date or next year.
