I’m now all booked and registered for the Summer SCBWI conference in LA. This is my first BIG conference. I’ve gone to the Backspace conference in NYC the last few years, but only 150 people or so attend that one. I wanted to go to something more focused on YA (and other children’s writing) this year. Plus I get to meet my critique partners! And lots of other people I’ve interacted with online. I LOVE putting faces and personalities to online names.
I’m going a day early so
I’m hoping to bring Robert Pattinson home with me unless he’s out of town filming Eclipse, which is the only excuse I’ll accept.
I’m also staying two days after the conference to visit with my cousin who now lives in LA. I never get to see her anymore. We’ll hopefully have lots to discuss because we’re both about to get engaged and will be in each other’s wedding parties. (She’s more due for it than me even though she’s a year younger. I’ve been with my bf for 6 years. She’s been with hers for almost 9!)
I’ve already started planning my outfits. Gotta figure out something to wear to the Blue Moon party!
