Friends, Countrymen, Fellow Writers,
Tomorrow morning at 5:20am we take off for Los Angeles and the Society of Children’s Book Writer’s and Illustrators Summer Conference 🙂 I’m so excited!
I would sure appreciate all of your good thoughts and prayers for a successful manuscript critique with an industry professional, don’t know who it is yet, or on which day of the conference it will be. Also, the manuscript deemed the best wins a wonderful prize, a trip to New York and meetings with two Editors 🙂
The conference starts at around 8:30am each day and finishes at around 5:30-6:30pm. (There are many breakaway workshops and I’m hoping I’ve choosen the best ones for me.) We will have lunch breaks, but as you can see it’s a full schedule which I am happy about.
Then there are the Awards Luncheon and the Wine and Cheese party and the By the Light of the Silvery Moon Gala. I can’t tell you the last time we went to a fancy do 🙂
So, I will see you all when I get back (prize in hand) on the eighth 🙂
