SCBWI here I come....

SCWBI (Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators) Fall Philly Conference is this weekend. I am headed there this afternoon!
I have a group critique tonight and tomorrow is a FULL day of speakers to listen to, authors to meet, books to buy, autographs to get, editors to rub shoulders with...WHEW! It's a children's writer's dream! I paid the extra fee for a one-on-one with a big time editor who currently has my manuscript in her hands! We will chat about it and she will give me her opinions, make suggestions and hopefully impart enough constructive criticism to put all these
behind me!
(my pages upon pages of rejections)

That sounds so fun! I have so many notes on a children's book I want to write, just need to get to it. I hope you post about your trip. I would love to hear all about it!

Sounds like you are having a wonderful time! I hope no more rejections are in your very near future!

How exciting! I hope you get some good advice (and maybe a deal!)

Remember, each rejection leads you to being that much closer to the acceptance! I should know--I got more than 100 before I got my agent ... and still waiting for that book deal ...

Boy, I'm freaking encouraging, aren't I??? LOL! HAVE A GREAT TIME!
