Conference-ially Lacking

Many of my friends are meeting up today for the NESCBWI conference in Nashua. (I feel jealous.) I’ve gotten tidbits here and there of talks that will be given, and workshops that will be presented, and fish and chips that will be eaten, and let me tell you, it all sounds sooooooooo wonderful. To everyone attending, here’s wishing you inspiration and knowledge and community and renewal. And that all of that would translate into good books for kids. (I still feel jealous, but not as much when I remember the ultimate goal.)

In my own upcoming conference news, a few weeks ago I bit the bullet and sent my deposit for this . I’ve wanted to go to one of Rebecca’s poetry workshops for a while, and have been wanting to push myself more in the area of poetry, and given that I’ll be in the States during that time, it only makes sense to go. (Not to mention the fact that I was looking for another chance to go back to Boyds Mills. Oh my. Even the dirt at that place is inspired. And inspiring.) Anyone else going to be there?

  1. wow…I wish I had the guts.

    But I don’t. Not yet.

    See, I have this problem, I can’t write away from home. I’m working on it. I’m going to start trying to go different places and see if I can write, even for short amounts, but at the moment, I’m tethered. Sigh.

      1. Yeah, I go to conferences. But I can’t write. Heck, I can’t sleep and I’m such a picky eater that I have to bring snacks so I don’t starve. 🙂

        I’m such a mess.
