So. It’s February. Cold and wind and ick, right?
But today was different. The wind wasn’t attacking, the clouds were in hiding, and the thermometer was reasonable. It was a crazy seventy-four degrees today, so I went for a walk.
Even though I knew I was supposed to have already published this blog post, in anticipation for the conference. Whoops.
After all, the conference is sixty-five days away, right? There’s time.
But then…I went for my walk. And whoa it was nice outside. And suddenly, spring didn’t seem that far away anymore. Spring is just about here, and the conference is coming with it. And that’s exciting. But it also means that it’s time to dust off the manuscripts and get ready.
I just procrastinated here because this is such a rambly post, and went to twitter. Our social media coordinator, Valerie, mentioned that she was looking forward to some great animated gifs in this post. So I’m going to go find one now.
So, if you’re a procrastinator like me, you’ll really want to get going on this thing, because there’s less than a week before the deadline for paid critiques and pitch sessions and other awesome stuff like that. That deadline is Feb. 17. That’s seriously coming up.
You can check it all out on the Oklahoma SCBWI web site, and then get signed up.
Do that first. And then eat your croissant. But it won’t be as good as hers.
