Look what came in the mail today!
I ordered some writerly business cards from moo.com and I’m very excited about how pretty they came out. And different colors! Like a fun-pack!
At the end of January I’ll be traveling to NYC for the SCBWI NY Winter Conference.The letters are too numerous and nearly out of control, I know. But SCBWI stands for Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
I have never ever done something like this before and I’m prepping myself to be socially anxious for three days straight. Even thinking about it now…the sitting next to people and making conversation, the lunches, the standing in line at the bathroom…it’s …
I literally just stopped in the middle of that sentence to pour myself some water. I’m back now.
But, it will also be a wonderful opportunity to meet other people from around the country who are writing and agenting and editing and publishing. I’m very excited to attend all of the talks. Also, I’ve signed up for a workshop where some folks in the industry will review the first 500 words of THELMA, and that’s going to be extremely helpful to me.
So, come January 26th I’m going to head down to NY, check myself into a little hotel room and proceed to wander around Manhattan by myself in between writing seminars. So, social anxiety shall be overcome by the fact that this is going to be an incredible, unlikely solo vacation.
I’ll probably meet a ninja turtle and have lunch with Mandy Patkinkin too. Because I’ll be in New York.
Re: The cards. I think I like the pink one best, is that wrong?
