Posting Live from SCBWI-LA!

Woot! I'm posting live from SCBWI-LA! I only have a few minutes, but I hope to post a full update tonight! (Though I'm learning so much that I will have material for at least a week's worth of posts! Get excited, people.) So far, I've learned the following things:
  • Jon Scieszka is hilarious.
  • M.T. Anderson has a fabulous singing voice (I will be providing proof of this later.)
  • MG boys don't like nerds, unless they are nerds, and then they like them just fine.
  • Editors do read things in the slush pile, despite what their "official policy" says (well, their summer interns read it anyway).
  • Don't be shy about saying something to the author who is staying TWO DOORS DOWN from your hotel room, because chances are she's actually really nice. 
  • SCBWI is awesome.
So, just my quick update :) Hopefully I'll have time to post something more detailed tonight! Until then, get the latest from my tweets: @HeatherTrese


  1. Um. All boys are nerds.

    Have fun! Your tweets are very informative, btw.

  2. Yay! Can't wait to hear more! Post everything! I'm living vicariously through you this weekend!

  3. I love reading about all the exciting happenings! I hope I can manage to get to some cool events like this at some stage. Need to lug myself out of this country to where it's all at.

  4. Interesting. I guess my question would be, what type of nerd are we talking about? The pocket-protector, chess lover, that spends more time online and has little social skills... wow, I went total stereotype on that one. Or does that include science orientated, studies karate and watches anime. Just curious.

    Look forward to the full report as well. Will watch the blog as I wait. ;-)

  5. I've enjoyed all your tweets so far..SO glad you're having a blast!

  6. YAY! I'm having so much fun so far! I know you are composing a new blog post on the other bed in our hotel room right now, but I still felt compelled to post on this one.


Loved it? Hated it? Either way, I want to hear what you thought!
