Well That Was Stimulating

I had a great day in Fishkill, New York where I attended the SCBWI Eastern New York's Mid-Hudson Valley Conference. Susan Campbell Bartoletti gave the keynote address. Quite honestly, she is kind of a goddess. I have yet to read any of her books, but she's a tremendous speaker, and her primary research sounds very impressive. I don't mean to brag, but I got to talk to her personally because I cut out of the last session early and caught her while she was by herself at the signing table.

I also went to my first literary agent talk and my first digital publishing talk and on top of all that, I ran into three people I know. They were other Connecticut escapees hitting the New Yorkers' conference.

So I am quite happy right now, even though tomorrow is a home maintenance day, which isn't exactly what anyone would call something to look forward to. Ah, but remember what the Zenny folks say--don't dread the future, live in the moment.
