Conference was great -- congrats to the organizers Anindita and Greg and all the volunteers who worked so hard to put it all together.  Having been involved in the behind the scenes of conference planning in another life (anyone familiar w/ the National Association for Campus Activities?), I know how complicated the planning process can be.  But, it's also rewarding and I hope they know that the attendees appreciate it.

I met a lot of great people (have to sort through all the cards I exchanged) and reacquainted with others.  I spent face-to-face time w/ my online critique group (totally love these ladies!).  I met some blogging friends "in person." I attended great workshops.  I heard motivating keynotes (Cynthia Leitich Smith was awesome).  I met w/ two agents and received great feedback.

I am exhausted.  But motivated!

Here's our group - Laura, Jen, Natasha, and me!
And here I am w/ some blogging friends, Heather, Karen, Anna, and Laura!

Now, get writing.

Actually, no, go to work first.  Then after school activities.  Then write. 

*Sigh* Back to real life.

You all look like intimidating writers!

Wow. Sexy? Transformed? Intimidating?

Well, um, yes. All of those things. ;)
