Love Beach Style

Yes, this is my daughter and her soon-to-be husband at the beach.
The reason I posted this picture is because I"m heading to the beach at the end of this week with some other writers (Missy included) to have a writing retreat. And we literally mean retreat. We retreat to write.
That's about all we do for the time we are there. We do not cook. We have cereal and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch and head out to dinner.
Writing is our only focus and it worked the last time we went.
But the last time I was revising. This time I need to finish my book. The Golden Heart contest deadline is fast approaching and I really want to enter this book.
Plus it is a Georgia Romance Writers Writing Challenge month...It will be great to post all the words written.
So this picture inspired me. It's all about love.
And rememeber. I love love.
What do you love that inspires you?


  1. Hmm, I can't name one thing in particular that inspires me. Except maybe travel. Watching the news, too. Weird, I know.
    Have a great time on your retreat. We're heading out for ours later this month. I can't wait.

  2. I'm weird like Mindy - odd things inspire me. The news, sometimes. personal experience - but I'll never write about myself. Travelling always stirs my creative juices. I like to take tragic things and make something good out of them. And of course, there will always be the flair of romance there!

  3. Wait a minute! What do you mean you're weird like me? Just who are you calling weird?!

  4. You guys are talking WEIRD and leaving out Lindi's family? I suppose she needs to enlighten ya'll.........
    What inspires me ? Felix and Buckwheat.......they inspire me to change food and water, clean the litter box, Darrell inspires me, I am inspired to pack his lunch, cook his dinner, clean the house. You got it by now........ and he also inspires me to go to work which I have to do in an hour (gotta love the 10 pm to 6 am shift) so I am inspired at this point at the idea of a shower ! Goodnight all !

  5. They are so cute! I'm inspired by travel, history, movies, music, experience, etc. Really, anything can set a new story off in my head.

  6. Hi all,
    Cuz.....what are you doing 10-6? I"ll call you tomorrow night.
    And different things inspire me...Sometimes a story on the news or on a show.
    Right now my David Crowder CD Remedy is extremely inspiring.

  7. Lindi, I will call you............I never know when I get to sleep, sometimes in the AM, sometimes in the Pm.......

  8. Sometimes literally the air I breathe inspires me like it did this morning. It felt so tactile, like I could drink it. It filled me with freshness inside. I love the fall in Montana.


  9. The beach! No kidding. Not just because I'm going, but because it always has. :)

    And cool air after this hot, dry summer. I felt very engergized tonight with the cool front coming through.
