NESCBWI 2015 Spring Conference

Well, I done did it. Signed up for the conference this year after an art drought, which is still lingering but nonetheless, I'm dragging myself through it.

It's exciting to think about the Illustration Challenge, networking with kidlit folks and learning new things. Not to mention a two-day getaway. Can't remember the last time I used my suitcase (okay, no need to pull out the hankies yet...).

This year will be a little different in that I have my foot in two camps: as illustrator and writer. Having gone to the Writer's Loft a few times, I am slowly learning to carve out stories. This is not to say I know what I am doing, but I am starting down the road. Nor have I abandoned the illustration world, but I am looking at it (and myself) with different eyes. It ought to be interesting.
