SCBWI Miami Here I Come!

Yep. That's right! I'm off to Miami tomorrow after school for a weekend of writing bliss. I'm attending the SCBWI Miami conference. So excited! I even got my "ballgown" (Target special, but don't tell) for the Dragon Slayer's Ball. Everyone is dressing up as fairy tale characters. I've decided to be Isobel from Mistwood (love that book). I'm such a book geek.

On Friday I'm taking the Novel Writing Intensive with author Joyce Sweeney, agent Erin Murphy, and editor Krista Marino.

Jealous yet?

Then on Saturday, I have a manuscript critique from Cinda Williams Chima. Squee!

I promise to blog about it all when I get back. Let me know if there's anything you're especially interested in hearing about.

Gotta go and finish up packing.
