So, exciting times are ahead because I've just joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators!
And I am probably going to the regional conference in mid-September! It looks like a really fun way to meet fellow writers and learn more about the publishing industry in general, so I'm totally stoked! I really wish I could be more articulate right now (and sound less like a newbie), but this whole process is just so cool because I really never thought I'd be doing this.
I have a real profile on the SCBWI website and everything. Time to put my membership to good use :)
