If I wasn’t so conferenced-out, this post would be much longer. However, the day job happened way too early this morning, and I had a great deal too much fun over the weekend, so it’s brief.
I love the SCBWI conference because …
You get to play with maps and then write stories; here are Elizabeth Wein and Sheila Averbuch demonstrating.
You meet so many lovely, helpful new people that your brain threatens to implode.
The said people are amazingly friendly, and nobody makes you feel like Billy No Mates if it’s your first conference.
Names match up with faces – your on-line chat friends are real!
The food is yummy.
The wine is too.
You buy too many books, but who cares?
You just know you’ll be back next year.
