Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators

I’ve just spent the weekend at the 2017 Writers & Illustrators Working conference as a member of the Austin SCBWI.  What an inspiring group of members & faculty were in attendance.

Now, to put into practice the discipline of writing daily & to find the perfect words for the stories I write.  And, to remember that the process from creation to finished product can be a long one.

I also had the opportunity to make a “pitch presentation” at the conference to an editor from a major publishing house & felt that it went well.  But the inspiration for me at this conference came from hearing the stories of perseverance of those who now have published their children’s books & illustrations.

Who would expect that becoming a grandmother; (4 grandchildren presently) could evoke such creativity within me to write children’s stories.

And . . .  I’m loving every minute of it!
