A Re-Education

I just got back from the New England Society of Children’s Book Authors and Illustrators annual conference (aka NESCBWI14), and I had an AMAZING time. I met lots of wonderful new people, did some writing and plotting and journaling, ate some great food (a transcendent pulled pork sandwich) and some not-so-great food (an assemblage of beans, onions, olives, and mandarin orange slices masquerading as a Cobb salad), and enjoyed a late night boozin’ and schmoozin’ session with my colleagues.

Also, I enjoyed an eye-opening session on social media with the wise and wonderful Mitali Perkins. As a result of this digital re-education, I’ve decided to revamp my social media presence. I’ve created a Facebook page for my authorly pursuits; if you’d like to know what I’m up to in the world of children’s books and writing, I hope you’ll “like” my page. I’ll be updating it regularly with all sorts of info about my books and travels and thoughts on writing.

Now that I have this FB author page, I’m planning on restricting my FB profile to more personal pursuits and musings (and baby photos). So I’ll be doing a little bit of editing of my Friends list. I hope you’ll all understand my need to create these boundaries for myself; from here on in, I’d like to keep my profile limited to people I know, and open up my author page to anyone and everyone.

What’s up for me this week? I’ll be revising a new story I hope to send to my editor very soon, making some headway on a new section of a novel, sending some pages from that novel to my writing group for their consideration, and preparing myself for my very first Mother’s Day. Hard to believe how mega-pregnant I was last year at this time, and how not-so-little my little one is becoming!

What’s up for YOU this week? Did you attend NESCBWI14? What did you think?
