Creative people

Last Sat. I spoke at the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators conference in Portland, Oregon. I always enjoy a chance to see my fellow writers and to “talk shop” with them. I find it energizing to be around creative people who work hard to fulfill their dreams.

On Sun. I attended a production of “Godspell” in Bellevue, WA, because my grandson, Eric, played drums in the show. It was a fantastic production and thrilled me to see Eric using his talents.  Whether it’s writing, music, or any other artistic endeavor, creative projects feed the spirit.

I am ready to begin a new book and I couldn’t have better preparation than to attend an SCBWI conference and a fantastic musical production.
