I just got back from my first ever SCBWI Summer Conference in Los Angeles, and besides all of the:
- inspiration and information to be soaked up "like gravy on a biscuit,"
- wonderfully creative, talented, generous, and adorable people,
- frivolous fun with friends old and new. . .
the best part of the whole conference is that my teen nonfiction manuscript about how to save the world got nominated for the Sue Alexander award!
So, now I'm feeling this awesome pressure and responsibility to GET TO WORK! (Along with an irresistable urge to break into my happy dance.)
