Yeah, I'm going to the conference. You going to the conference?
Holy crap, it's almost here! In two days I leave for Los Angeles to attend the 40th anniversary 'Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators' conference. And this is a big one, y'all. It's so big, they had to put the word "international" before the title, so... more than one nation -- that's pretty big. For anybody who doesn't know, writing conferences are a magical place where powerful wizards emerge into the mundane realms to share the secrets of the arcane arts with willing mortals, or so I'm told. I don't know because I've never been to one before. Which is kind of what this blog post is all about.
Any of you been to a conference or two? Any stories or advice or pearls of wisdom you'd like to share with a runny-nosed newbie?
