This is exciting!
Today I am going to a one day SCBWI conference in San Antonio. It's Editors Day. Featured speakers are:
Sarah Shumway Senior Editor at HarperCollins
Julie Ham of Charlesbridge
Carmen Tafolla, award-winning author
I've entered the first 10 pages of one of my novels to be critiqued. And I've dared to enter the first page of another novel. No names on the first page. Some of the first pages submitted will be chosen by a panel and be discussed in front of all the attendees.
I'm excited. I don't get down to the city much at all except to go to the air port. So this will be a REAL outing for me.
I will no doubt learn something and will be taking notes. So be prepared, I'll probably post about it.
