All Set For the Big Conference
This last weekend was the big conference for the Northwest chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I had been helping to plan it, working on my portfolio, clearing my busy schedule, etc. Finally the big day was here and I was about to head to the conference when Vicki called to say her battery was dead. No biggie, I had a little extra time, so drove to her, cleaned off the battery terminals and jumped the battery. It started right up and off she went to the gas station for a new battery. Then I raced to the conference, right on time... to find out I had forgotten my satchel with the laptop and portfolio and, and, and. What a great start. Luckily it was safe at home and Vicki's battery was working.
