Start spreading the news...I signed up for SCBWI's New York Conference. It's my first time! I even dropped the big bucks for the pre-conference events. I'm excited to say the least. And nervous. And pumped. And did I mention nervous?
Mo Willems will be there. And Jane Yolen. And Lois Lowry (!!!) Yowza!
I'm trying to decide what story to take for the intensives. It's a little bit like a Cinderella story. You feel like you're dressed in rags, but you know the right dress is out there if only your fairy godmother would come along and whoosh it into existence. Except then you realize there is no such thing as a fairy godmother, and you've got to whoose that story up yourself. Gaccck!
If you're going, let me know. I'd love to meet you. I should be easy to spot. I'll be the one in the homemade ballgown, hoping to find my Prince Charming!
