After a mission is complete, there is always a scene when the hero/heroine has to meet the superiors for a debriefing session. In James Bond movies, this is referred to, and something Mr. Bond avoids with a final romantic retreat – with the lady of the movie. It’s a good practice.
I have no superiors waiting for my debrief of what I learned by attending a romance writers conference, and I don’t do – crowds – well. That means I’m not in debrief mode, where I give my impressions of a fabulous conference, amazing speakers and workshops. There were only a few – epiphanies – for me.
There was tons of talking, sharing stories, with friends I knew before – but didn’t really know – and amazing workshops, and talks, from inspiring speakers.
I’m in detox mode. Rest. I didn’t have a relaxing romantic pause. I guess I’m not – James Bond. But I do have a ton of new books. Which – for me – is awesome. Because that’s where the new journey begins, for me. In books.
