Hello, SCBWI Western Washington!

Tonight is another wonderful SCBWI Western Washington Professional Series Meeting featuring Tony Dirksen and Bonny Becker. I always look forward to these meetings because I get a chance to see and visit with some of my very favorite people. Tonight is even better. Since I am no longer one of the regional advisors, the responsibility is gone. I get to just go as Jolie and enjoy myself.

I had a brief panic this morning remembering that Tony, tonight's first presenter, emailed me awhile back about this very blog. Tony's talk is PODCASTS AND SOCIAL NETWORKING: THE FUTURE IS NOW. He plans to also talk about blogging and said he might be featuring Cuppa Jolie.


I suddenly had a vision of Tony pulling my blog up live and yesterday's post showing up on the big screen with a gajillion photos of Ryan Reynolds. It didn't feel too appropriate or very writerly. So now, here I am instead with a big:

Tonight also features the very talented Bonny Becker who will presenting BE WISE, REVISE. Bonny is the bestselling author of A VISITOR FOR BEAR and her talk will focus on revising the picture book. I'm certain she will pack the house.

I also hope to take care a certain piece of business that should have been taken care of long ago. Anyone recall that La La Contest from way back in December. I awarded the Licorice Lasso to one Miss Martha Brockenbrough. I feel it's time I finally deliver. Hopefully, tonight will be the night.

And, as will be appropriate to Tony's talk tonight, I am bringing my camera, as well as my Flip video camera and will blog about it all tomorrow.
