I am SOOOOOOOOOOO sorry to have been gone so long. I keep thinking that, after all this time, I have to write something MAGNIFICENT and scintillating to make up for my blog silence. But enough is enough! It's time to break the ice. It's better to write a mediocre post than no post at all. (Right? That's right, isn't it?)
So, a lot going on over here. I went to the wonderful-amazing-INSPIRING-and-glamorous SCBWI conference in Los Angeles. I have a bajillion pics and stories to tell you from that! Highlights: meeting one of my heroes, Bruce Coville; dancing the night away at the 40 Winks Ball; anything that had to do with hearing Libba Bray speak (she's a goddess); and spending time with my soul sister Dawn Simon.
I joined the advisory committee for my own SCBWI chapter, which has been a DREAM come true. I have admired the folks that organize our Western Washington chapter for a long time. We are blessed to have a vibrant, active, FUN, and excellently-run group so, being a part of things has been a true delight.
However, on a more personal note, my life is a bit topsy-turvy right now. Our family is relocating to the East Coast in October and I am going a bit CRAZY with planning and preparations! It's a very exciting move for us. My husband is thrilled about his new job. But, we will be saying good-bye to so many beloved friends and family, so it's bittersweet. (I'm going to cry just thinking about it!)
So, forgive me for being gone. Look for more posts soon. And celebrate my big move with me!!!!
Here's a clue about where we're moving to:
