Just signed up for SCBWI Western WA's 20th Annual Writing & Illustrating for Children Conference! This will be my first conference and I am feeling a mix of excitement and anxiety. After the Great Critique I realized that my Kiwi & Chirp story still needs a lot of revision and reworking until I feel satisfied that it is conference ready. So, I have also signed up again for Peggy King Anderson's Magic of Writing for Children class. It was an expensive morning! But well worth it. I need the help, guidance and support of my fellow Peggy King followers to get this work where I want it before Feb 26th when I have to send a draft in if I want to have a personal manuscript consultation (which I desperately do) and a conference ready draft no later than Mar 26th. So big goals and lots to do. I really can't wait to tackle this and make it a work I am truly proud of. 2011 is the year for writing and the pursuit of success!
