SCBWI Conference or Bust!
Well, the time has come.
You know that feeling you have before the first day of school? A little "day before Christmas" with a dash more of dread? That's how I feel today...the day before I attend my very first SCBWI conference in NYC.
*Deep Breath* I know this is going to be wonderful. I have heard nothing but amazing stories about conferences of the past and how much people have "taken away from them". However, I can't help but feel a little nervous.
I have never had a problem making friends or networking or simply making "small talk". So, armed with my usual smile and "go get 'em" attitude and a box of several hundred business cards that bear that smiling face ...I am ready! I think...
Here's where you come in.
There are so many of you out there in the blogosphere who have been to these conferences. And although I am sure I will have many words/advice/feedback to give after this weekend (and I will blog about it, I promise) I was wondering...if you had to give ONE tip to a newbie on the day before conference...what would it be?
I welcome your tips in advance.
Happy Writing and Conferencing to you all!
