...because I hate the cold.
But yay for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Winter 2010 conference!
R.L. Stine is giving the keynote address, which makes me happy... I loved me some Goosebumps books as a kid. I haven't been to a conference before, so while I'm excited by some of the great classes (and agents!) there, I don't know much about what it will be like. Besides cold, of course. Brr.
Is anyone else going? And does anyone want to split a hotel room if so? The Hyatt where the conference is being held is $219 a night, and that's just a bit out of this aspiring writer's budget. If I don't find a roomie, I'll be staying with the family in the Jersey suburbs.
Jersey, guys. Is anyone out there?
And does anyone have any thoughts or insights on the conference experience?
