SCBWI New England Conference

Wow. I'm currently sitting on my hotel bed at the  SCBWI New England Regional Conference.  Day one and two are now complete. So far it's been an overwhelming experience, but a really positive one. I have been getting a lot of great feedback from my work, meeting a lot of great people, and listening to some fantastic and inspiring stories. It's uplifting and unsettling at the same time. I'm not sure how to explain it! I think it will be a few days, or even a few weeks before I am able to sit down an write a cohesive post about what I have learned and how I feel about it.

It's great, great, GREAT to be with other illustrators again. So much of what we do is alone in our little creative spaces trying to do our work. It can be so isolating.  Lonely (As I imagine this to be a similair case with writers)Ah! But there is so much fantastic work being done out there! It's exciting!

Anyway. This is all I can think of right now! 

Goodnight dear, blog.

It is good to leave our little four wall sanctuaries and be around other creative types. The conference was a wonderful learning experience. Best of luck!
