No, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth...just been BUSY! :) But, in a good way!

I attended the NOLA STARs conference this past weekend-whew! It was a BLAST. Met with an editor and I think it went well. But the workshops--wow, they were AWESOME. The one I enjoyed the most was Vickie Taylor's where she presented the "plot blob"...FINALLY, I get it! LOL I discovered I'm not a linear-thinker, so her "blob" was beyond excellent for me. Now I'm ready to dive into my stories!

As I'm a member of NOLA, I was presented with the "2005 Reach For the Stars Award" for my writing accomplishments of last year. What a surprise!

Still trying to catch up on my crits so I can dive into my cozy series. I'm really having a lot of fun with it, for something different.

So...anyone have any news to report????

Amazing, woman! You really are. I'll be interested to read your "cozy". I always like your suspense.

HI Robin- Love your blog!

I'm not linear, either... I did note cards once in an effort to plot out my scenes, but they are still in their shrink wrap.

The blob sounds interesting!

I was hoping to go to the Pike's Peak Writer's conference this year, but financially, it's not feasibly now. Guess I'll save for next year. Speaking of plots (and possible blobs) This one jumped into my head yesterday: A vampiress, a doctor who feeds on pain, a werehippo, a talking dog and a greek goddess trying to reclaim some dignity. I have a cast, I'm just not sure how to fit them together.

Congrats on the award!

Hey I think I know what your plot blob is--I heard of something called Mind Mapping which sounds similar cuz it's all blobs of ideas.
