As this week begins, I’m in LA at the 41st Annual SCBWI Summer Conference. I’ve seen tons of writing friends, attended outstanding sessions, enjoyed the book store, viewed illustrators’ portfolios, and even participated in a flash mob to surprise and honor Lin Oliver and Steve Mooser.
Since I’m still learning and processing what I learned (and being inspired beyond belief), this week’s posts are odds and ends that will hopefully provide some helpful information and inspiration for you.
