Presentations are Done!

This past Friday I presented three workshops at the KORCOS conference here in Seoul. Nearly a thousand international teachers from across Korea gathered together to learn and share ideas. I shared about writing- of course! One of them was on bookmaking, I was honored to co-host with Jenny Walters, our SCBWI Korea representative. She's so innovative and creative that it was a real joy to work with her.

Jenny and I also set up a booth for the SCBWI Korea chapter to promote who we are as well as try to network with schools to bring international authors to Korea. We are so excited because we have three authors coming already!

Last week was an insane week with getting ready for the conference. Plus I broke my toe in taekwondo class. So I've been hobbling around and frustrated at not being able to move faster. I've decided that since I can't go running in the morning until it heals, I'll just write during that time. That brightened my mood. And the fact that it snowed here again! In March!

I've been neglecting my blogging of late, but I did notice that A Romantic Enters the World is having a great contest. Definitely go check it out!

And it's too late to enter Nora's contest, but you need to check out here adorable blog at Lemons for Lemonade.

How on earth do you manage to break your toe in taekwondo, girl?! Not that I'm one to talk. LOL

Glad to hear the presentations went well. And kudos for deciding to write during running time. I should be writing during my "surfing on the internet" time. :-0

Sounds like you've been keeping busy. Ouch on that broken toe! I hope it heals soon. At least you can write, so don't go breaking any fingers, okay? ;)

Sounds like your presentations were super. Isn't the high after they're done great?
