The Countdown begins! Only four more days until we leave for the L.A. SCBWI Conference. And, oh my goodness, I'm not ready. Does anyone else out there wish that this conference was one month later? It would be great if it were AFTER the kids were settled into school. And, AFTER I've had a block of time. Alone. To work.
I'm looking forward to this year's conference more than ever--great friends, great speakers . . . I'm looking for some great inspiration and help with my work. My big plan is to come home from the conference ON FIRE and ready to tackle my wip (a middle grade Southern mystery).
Plus, I've signed up for the portfolio showcase (as of this morning). I'm nervous about it because my portfolio isn't slick, but I hated not to do it. Maybe I'll get some good feedback--or maybe I'll just be embarrassed--but I didn't want to miss such a great opportunity. And, I've got my notebook ready for my crazy note-taking! Law school was a waste. I should have been a court reporter.
Ugh. I haven't even thought about packing. That may have to wait until Thursday morning.
Man, I can't wait to settle into that crunchy polyester seat on the plane. L.A. bound, baby!!
