YA Muses Writers Retreat

I spent the past weekend with Talia Vance, Donna Cooner, Katy Longshore and Bret Ballou, my blogging partners at YA Muses. We secluded ourselves near Estes National Park and spent the days writing, relaxing, critiquing and laughing.

A few thoughts I had over the weekend:
  • Nothing is as inspiring as being surrounded by talent.
  • Nothing is more grounding than a group of friends.
  • Nothing is as good for the soul as laughter.
  • Critique sessions are better with a fire and s'mores.
  • Elk are gorgeous but they make funny sounds.
  • I need to see more of Colorado.

I'll dig in a little deeper over at the YA Muses on Thursday, but for now here are a few pictures.
