I'm booked!

Not children's book booked, but airline booked. I just purchased my ticket to Los Angeles for SCBWI's summer conference. I haven't registered yet, but I figured airline ticket prices would continue to rise, while the registration wouldn’t...as long as I register before June 26. This is going to be much fun — a four day trip — but quite pricey fun. I purchased my airline tickets at a relatively decent fair, but my hotel bill will be three times as much. Ug, I'm feeling sick. But, I've never done one of these conferences, and would like to just once.

Everyone is deciding to go. Wah! Man I wish I could afford to be there too. Take good notes to share when you get home.

Have a great time. No matter how hard I wish, I can't seem to find all the money I need to attend. SNIFF.

I'll see you there, Don. I am lucky indeed that this is my hometown Conference.

You'll realize how lucky you are, once you get there! I went to the Winter conference in NY, and was able to attend the Illustrator's Day as well as the regular conference. It was definitely eye-opening and inspiring. One of the things I kept thinking was, "I finally have found my people!" Have fun, and post plenty of notes, pretty please!
