SCBWI 2010 Summer Conference in LA, are you going?

I'm so excited!  My first writer's conference!!!! I joined SCBWI about two weeks ago and I can't wait to get networking.  You hear about writer's finding their agent at conference, I'm sure not the norm but it inspired me to set a new goal for myself.

One day I will have publishing deadlines (the thought freaks me out).  Why not give myself a deadline for my book.  Not just finish my book but have it finished, critiqued, redacted, reviewed, cleaned, and polished by the conference.  I'm halfway through writing it, so I think this is a plausible goal for me.  You never know when a pitching opportunity can come about and if I am finished, I will be ready.

To learn more about SCBWI go here or more about the conference go here.  They also have a conference blog here.

Do you plan to attend?
