It's That Time Again


It's finally arrived. The weekend I look forward to every year. It's SCBWI's Annual Writer's Conference. Each year hundreds of children's writers gather in New York City to meet, discuss and learn all there is to know about children's books.

There are always interesting keynote speakers. Generally they will talk about how they got into the business and why they decided to stay.

I myself began writing for children about two years ago. Now before you go rushing out to your local bookstore to find my book, I must warn you, I don't have one. Although writing is high on my priority list, like most SAHM's, my children still supersede everything on the list. I'm always amazed to meet those women who manage to run a household and publish a book (you're incredible!)

Until that day arrives I will continue to blog about the ordinary, extraordinary, the highs, the lows, and the status quoes.

This will be my last post until I arrive back in town (hopefully in time for the Superbowl). I look forward to sharing my experiences with all of you. Get ready to hear about the best of the best books for kids this year.

It will be a brisk 29 degrees in New York City this weekend. Hopefully Punxsutawney Phil will not see his shadow....Hello Spring!!!!!
