|The summer yoga sanctuary|
Last week I had to make a decision. Should I spend today doing a couple of hours of yard work, a little baking, some reading, spend twenty minutes in the summer yoga sanctuary, watch the season finale of The Americans
? Or should I attend a NESCBWI day-program, Building Your Community of Readers and Advocates?
It would be really funny, if, after all that build-up, I said, "I did some yoga and watched The Americans
." But, no, of course I went to the NESCBWI program. You know I'm a sucker for the whole community building thing, and I like those day-long programs. They're deep and extended without getting ridiculous about it the way, say, an MFA would.
This was a marketing program led by Kirsten Cappy
of Curious City
, a children’s book consulting company that creates marketing projects
that focus on
engaging readers. The focus of today's event was on discovery rather than traditional selling. Hmm. I don't think I heard a word about making bookmarks and postcards. No book launch parties. I could probably live without those.
I have to go to Twitter to look for the new people I met.
And I still watched the season finale of The Americans
: At today's program, someone brought up William Carlos Williams
' The Red Wheelbarrow
. Read it
. Then read this
I do recall who mentioned this poem, but I don't want to get into it, because she's working on a project related to it. If it works out, I will most certainly bring it up again.
