Just when everything was starting to weigh down on me I got invited to spend the evening on a houseboat for a sunset dinner cruise with some wonderful writers. How could I say no to that? I had never been to that part of Arizona and was looking forward to the trip. I had no expectations about the day.

Once we got there, we took a tour of the large boat that belonged to Alexis and Bob Walker. They put a lot of effort in showing us a good time. The good time fell under the fabulous catagory though. We had beautiful scenery while having great conversation with people we don't get to see nearly enough. A quiet spot was found so we could stop for dinner and then made our way back to the dock. It lasted all evening.

The night turned out amazing. I was able to get to know some of the women better, brainstormed my novel problem and actually found the missing piece, and was able to fully relax. I walked away with new energy toward life in general and my writing. Make plans with a friend or two... and see what a few hours of fun does to you!

Talk to you soon,
Wendy Ely

Time away works miracles IMHO :-)

Glad you found a way to solve your novel problem :-)

It was like finding the last piece to the puzzle. Everything made sense finally so now maybe this will be my last time writing the beginning and end!

Sigh...wish I was there...I'm so jealous. Sounds so wonderful. I'm so happy you found that missing piece. Lovely photos!
