SCBWI LA Conference...loving it!

Quick check in with you this morning.  Yesterday was my first day at conference and it went by so fast.  I've met so many new people and reconnected with people I knew. Didn't get a single picture yesterday but I'll remedy that today.

Libba Bray's key notes was hilarious and down right honest.  She talks about how"getting it wrong is the necessary part of getting it write." Good news she says, "Your manuscript sucks!"  Then she goes into how to find the right tools to fix it.  More on her later.

Laura Halse Anderson (author of Speak) gave a very honest/tough love workshop on how you can carve out more writing/creative time so "stop farting around on the internet." *guilty*

Emma Dryden discussed the "Traversing the Digital Landscape" where she discusses the "digital book age" and are you ready for it?  Also a big question in ebooks: "Do they have quality?"  This is something I'd like to talk on my blog further about.

All this and more will elaborated on next week.  If you are here today, track me down via my comments.  If not, wish you were!  Have a great day!
