The breakout sessions were fantastic--and very funny (I'm looking at you, Jon Scieszka!) And honestly, it was one of those experiences that made me think, Damn. I have the best job in the world. :-)
How I felt the next morning after... writing so much.
The wonderful carpool crew! Laini Taylor, Jim Di Bartolo and Emily Whitman
A picture to show I wasn't excessively smiling the ENTIRE time.
Why, yes. That is the amazing Nathan Bransford. As an aside, can I just say, he is the nicest, most humble person I met. Unbelievably charming and smart. I was very happy to put a face to the blog.
Huh. Not sure how I got to be first in line for Adam Rex to sign my book... but I was pretty stoked about it!
What an awesome group to hang with! Liz Gallagher, Holly Cupala, Jolie Stekly, Jim Di Bartolo and Laini Taylor.
Me and Jolie snuck out to enjoy some sunshine
Before I was assaulted with a lemon. I'm not naming names....
Hangin' at the wine and cheese party with the Stinky Cheese Man himself
Me and Jennie, taking notes....
Go Team SCBWI, Go!
So, I'm not the most thorough conference goer... but I always have a good time. I love to chat and meet people (I won't mention the severe social anxiety disorder) and for me, that's what I enjoy most. I attended a bunch of workshops and loved them. I tweeted some tidbits, but mostly, it was the inspiration I took away from them. A desire to make my career last forever.
Because writing ROCKS!
