November Novel Revision Retreat! (or I'm a Sucker for SCBWI)

Tip of the Day: I've previously advertised my enjoyment of Red Cat, but White Cat -- yum for post-revisions! Delicious!

You may remember a few weeks ago when I was deciding whether or not to apply to the SCBWI Falling Leaves Weekend Novel Revision Retreat.

Well, after asking my manpanion if it was crazy to apply for that conference after attending the YALSA conference in Albuquerque the weekend before, he said, "Nah. Go for it." So I did -- and I got it! (Ok, it's possible that only 30 people applied to go so "getting in" wasn't that far of a stretch, but it feels nice to say "accepted" instead of "rejected" as much as possible in this business.)

Pubbed as well as unpubbed authors will be there in attendance -- and I can't wait to network with all of them plus the editors and lovely SCBWI advisors!

The novel that got me accepted is the YA that was my first ever novel that I started rewriting last summer before I went nuts-o writing the FASHION book. I'm excited to have a reason to go back to it and polish it up!

Is anyone else going to Falling Leaves in November?
