Writer's Retreat, Eeeek!

In exactly three days, gulp, I will be heading to Texas for a writer's retreat with twenty-one other amazing authors!!! I can't even believe it!! Out of all the great things that have happened since this time last year, this is probably one of the biggest for me. It's a chance to hang out with some of my closest online writer friends and to meet some authors that I've been a fan girl of ever since I started writing. To give you an idea of why it's so awesome, here's the list of people who're going.

I know, CRAZY, right? The weirdest part? A few years ago some of these authors were on a very similar retreat and held a live video chat to talk about their upcoming books and I was sitting in front of my computer watching thinking how very cool is that? All of those authors hanging out together talking about writing....and now I'm on the same retreat. *faints* Just goes to show you how different your life can become in a very short period of time and how sometimes the stuff you wish for COMES TRUE.


  1. Too cool. Bethany Hagen's my beta! You'll have to take pictures Amy (I've never been to Texas) and I can't wait to hear how much writing you get done! Have a great time.

  2. Ha! I didn't know that:-) How cool! I'll totally be posting pics, thanks for the well-wishes!

  3. Is this meant to be torture? Because looking at this list and knowing I could have been there definitely feels like it XD

    Srsly though, have fun and write (or drink) a lot and do vlogs and watch Legend and bask in the awesomeness! Yay!

    1. There will be no watching of LEGEND until you are with us. I decree it!

  4. AMY! That is pretty much my exact thought process. Last year, I had just started the round of edits that landed my book deal and now...

    It's going to be AWESOME. :)

    1. What a weird, awesome, amazing journey this whole getting published thing is. I am so happy that we all get to share it with each other!
