The SCBWI winter conference was last week in New York. I was there, as were fellow Team Sparklers: Susan Adrian, Emily Hainsworth and Victoria Schwab… and more than a thousand other writer-people.
It was wonderful.
Just ask Susan:
Or Nova Ren Suma, who we dragged away from her deadline to come conferencing with us.
In fact, because they've already done a fabulous job summarizing and describing all the wonderful people, books, laughter, wisdom, and hijinks we discovered, I don't feel the need to re-state it. Procrastination WIN! I will just add this:
How to Eat A Cupcake – Team Sparkle Style.
…because it is a widely accepted fact that all the best writing is fueled by sugar.
If you've never tried my less-mess sandwich technique, you're missing out. Run, don't walk, to the nearest bakery and procure yourself a cupcake.
Then, once the sugar-jitters have faded, sit down and write some sparkly words.
You can thank me later.
