That's right, I am writing to you today from the New England SCBWI writing conference in Fitchburg Mass and so far I am loving it. It's nice to be surrounded by other writers and hear their stories of disappointments and triumps. It's conforting to know that they've succeeded against all odds and rejections. It gives me hope. I met one woman, who just today, had an agent for a publishing company ask to see her full manuscript after only reading a few sample pages. I think next year, now that I know the ins and outs of this conference, I will take full advantage to what they have to offer: critiques and reviews by actual editors and agents in the field. And, yes, I plan on coming back.
Stay tuned for more as the conference has only just begun. I still have 3 sessions and 3 keynote speaches. Plus a book signing. Boy, am I having fun.
