Harold Underdown giving the keynote address on Sunday
I've been very distracted by non-writerly stuff lately. So the NESCBWI conference came at absolutely the perfect time for me. I'd signed up ages ago, so had no choice but to go. I was only there Saturday night and Sunday, but what a lovely day and a half it was!
Highlights ... Meeting the wonderful Stacy Whitman of Tu Books, who has such infectious passion for multicultural children s' fiction, and attending her 2 part fantasy world building workshop. Watching a screening of The Library of the Early Mind. The upbeat Getting Unstuck workshop with Mark Peter Hughes. And of course hanging out and catching up with lots of writing friends.
It isn't long before the school year's done so I'm switching to warp speed writing mode now. Thanks NESCBWI for the energy, inspiration, and focus to get me back in the zone!
