The Scribblers writing group held a one day workshop at Camp DeWolfe camp and retreat center in Wading River, on the North Fork of Long Island.
So, you’re wondering how a gal from Brooklyn got to a workshop on the North Fork. Well, that’s easy. I was the guest of Long Island author Jenna Victoria.
The house where the event was held has an interesting history. During World War II, FBI agents posing as enemy spies used this house to send radio messages with misinformation (or as they say, “disinformation”) to Germany across the Atlantic Ocean.
We were greeted with a table full of homemade goodies. This was no low-cal, low-carb situation. I can personally attest to the fact that the chocolate-chip blondies were amazing. The bunt cake was scrumptious with an incredible lemon icing. ~ Yes, I had more than one piece.
We broke up, each to find our own cozy place to write. This was my room.
I worked on the chapter which is the darkest moment in DEADLY DESIGNS, the second novel in the Veronica “Ronnie” Ingels/Dawson Hughes series
This was our group at the Scribblers’ Writing Workshop. There I am in the back left. Long Island Sound is behind us.
Though not visible, Connecticut is across the sound and is also the setting of DEADLY DESIGNS.
So, I stood on the bluff and thought a few things through about where my plot twists would wind up.
