Writing for Young Readers...I Survived

Well, I just got back from my conference and it was fantastic! This is the year that I felt I took a step up in my writing. Which made me super happy.

I mingled with friends, I learned about the craft and I also met Yamille! Hi Yamille (who is dang cute!) My friend put together this amazing video all about it.

And take a look at Alane Ferguson dancing! So awesome!

BTW: I don't read well under pressure (unless it's Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham...I totally rock reading those books).



I'll be catching up on blogs the next few days (after my long, long nap).

That was great! I am so impressed and jonesing that I don't have a conference to go to. Oh yeah. I do. The WriteOnCon online conference in August. Yay!

Thank you for sharing, Carolyn. I could feel the excitement and energy. I'm happy for you. ";-)

The song was awesome! Looks like it was a great conference. I could feel the excitement from the video. Have a good rest today.

I wasn't able to attend this year, but did stop by to pick up some charity donation books from staff. It was so beautiful up at that new location and everyone seemed to be having such fun. Hope the nap is long and uninterrupted!

I want to hear more of your story. It was a good and tiring week. Fun video thanks for sharing. I didn't even realize Yamille was there - sad I didn't meet her.

How cool of your friend to put that together. =] You look awesome in your glasses by the way. I've never seen you wear them before.

You are so adorable! And I am so jealous - jealous you got to attend a great conference and jealous Yamille got to see my bff and I didn't! *pouty face*

Glad you had a great time! It's good to "see" you! :-)

So now I know why I couldn't feel right about hitting the conference this year - it must be that everyone there had really great eyebrows. I would simply not have fit. (And there was that family vacation...)

Jaydee Morgan said...

So glad you had a good time! I can't wait to be able to participate in one of these.

Tiana Smith said...

Oh my goodness, this sort of thing would terrify me! I'm not quite ready for that, but thank you for sharing :) I especially liked the Lady GaGa, LOL.

What a great time. I like going to conferences myself.

I'm glad I stopped by, because I haven't heard about this conference. Thanks to you I found and bookmarked their website.
