SCBWI Poughkeepsie, NY Conference
June 13, 2009

Cynthia, me, and Jennifer

This was my second time to a SCWBI conference in Poughkeepsie.  
I went with Cynthia Iannaccone and Jennifer Burrows.  Linda Sue Park 
was the keynote speaker.  Her presentation was personal, insightful 
and inspiring.

As always going to conferences hits me with a sense of reality, magic, 
and a touch of craziness!  (Me? Real? Never!)

After conferences I am eager to get back home and get right to work
improving my submissions. 

I had a critique on my story, "Eli's Wings," with author, 
Elizabeth Cody Kimmel.   I valued her insights and perhaps might revise 
this story as a middle reader. 

At the Mercury Grand Hotel where I stayed (conference also held there),
Jennifer and I went to Bananas Comedy Club at the Hotel.  We saw 
Dave Coulier's performance.  It was quite "impressive."  Dave is most 
familiaras Joey in the TV sitcom Full House.
