I love SCBWI

I spent all day Saturday at a local SCBWI (Society of Childrens’ Book Writers and Illustrators) conference, which was very good for my heart and soul. If I can figure out how to download the pictures from my camera (help me, Mer!) I’ll show you some of the neat people who were there. It felt amazing to get out of the house and be with other writers for a change. Yesterday was get ready for the week day, and movies with some of our kids. We saw King Kong (do not see it), which stank, but gave us plenty to critique (plot, pacing, character development, you name it). I spent all morning with my mom who had another nasty medical thingie to get through.

Happy Martin Luther King’s birthday, everyone!

And now… back to work.

    1. Thanks… she has a lot of health issues that require much time being tested and visiting doctors’ offices. but she’s doing OK, all things considered. Her favorite description of herself is “a tough, old broad.”

      My mother wants me to tell all of you guys reading this not to smoke, and if you are smoking now, to stop. She smoked from the time she was 20 until they put her on oxygen (24/7) a year ago. She is 75 now. Her smoking habit has made her retirement years very hard, and is cutting her life short. Please quit today.

  3. Wow, sorry about your mom. My grandmother is going through a medical thing too, but she’s “toughing it out.” I read Catalyst today, and was so surprised. Kate is way different from Melinda. I can’t wait for your WIP to come out. Ambree

  6. I knew it wasn’t going to be that good. My dad wants to see King Kong so bad. I’m looking forward to see Adam Rapp’s moive Winter Passing. I forgot the release date…must find out and mark calender!!! I wish I could go to the writers conferences here. My Mom knows I want to go bad!!!! She said she’d take me one these days…sighs. I only talk with fellow writers through the online writing group I’m in, which isn’t bad because we email, write, and phone each other. But it’d be nice to be face to face!!

    Happy Martin Luther King’s birthday to you too!!!
