Kip Wilson Rechea (@kiperoo) talked about how she writes every day so she maintains altitude. You know, those writing take-offs can be bumpy (and time consuming)!! How smart is that?
Melissa Stewart (@mstewartscience) spoke about speaking at schools. Check out her awesome stash of science books.
Deborah Kops (@Deborahkops) talked of our responsibility as writers to promote strong, confident girls as main characters in our books. Because girls today certainly could use good role models.
Kris Asselin (@KristineAsselin) wowed us with her logline. I know that good news will be on the horizon for Kris' excellent YA.
Jolanta Davis spoke with me at length about special needs advocacy. Thanks so much Jolanta! I'd love to see you publish around this issue. Clearly you have the expertise and the heart for it!
What did I contribute? I'm not entirely sure. I loved the conversation and the laughs, though!
Thanks again Kris, for making the meet up happen! I can't wait to see everyone again at #nescbwi!
What nuggets of wisdom have you gleaned from your writing friends recently? Will I see you at the NESCBWI?
