ng LA conference, I make new, wonderful friends. But, usually I go home and lose touch with the people I've met. Not this time. I spent a good deal of the conference with 6 women- learning, eating, drinking, and eating some more. If it was any other year, I would have occasionally emailed these women over the next month or two and eventually we would have lost touch. But that year, I told my posse about Google Groups (thanks to Paula Woo!) and so was born RockSugarBeets--named after a couple of yummy restaurants we went to during the conference. I don't think a day goes by that the RockSugarBeets are not in contact. This is not a critique group. There is no stated purpose. RockSugarBeets is my village.RockSugarBeets: Me, Amber Lough, Cindy Pon, Jacqui Robbins, Sara Lewis Holmes, Elise Murphy, Debbie Friedman.
Come to the conference to learn but also make sure to hang in the lobby---you never know if your newest best buddy will be there waiting for you:)
I'll be at the conference this year on faculty---Come meet me! For more info on this summer's SCBWI Conference click HERE
