What I'm up to

I feel a list coming on.

1. Today? Errands, cleaning, and packing for the weekend. My sweetheart and I leave in time to see dawn's crack tomorrow to head to Massachusetts for the NESCBWI conference in Springfield. We will probably visit UMass in the a.m., since we'll be hella early, but it's necessary in order to beat it around NYC before rush hour snarls start in earnest.

2. Earlier this week, I updated a bunch of content on my website. I really need to swap out the photos over there and add covers for AT THE BOARDWALK and such, but still - it now reflects reality. Which includes a link on the "Writing for Children" section to a new page about the editorial consulting I do for picture books and poems. Boo-yah!

3. This weekend: It's NESCBWI time! I won't be presenting this year (they didn't accept any of my proposals, woe), but I am very much looking forward to the sessions I'm going to attend on Friday and Saturday, and to seeing the many, many folks I know and love up there. Also, as mentioned earlier, I am bringing my sweetheart along. Because I can. And because I'd rather be with him than without him. I believe he may spend some time playing tai chi in a local park, perhaps with a wooden staff, even, but most of you going who know me will meet him.

4. Later this month, on May 22nd, I am going to be in Belmar, New Jersey for the reopening of the boardwalk there. The kind folks at the Belmar Public Library have invited me, and I am supposed to read AT THE BOARDWALK to the kids during the reopening event. (In case you aren't aware, Belmar's boardwalk was demolished during Hurricane Sandy, so this reopening event in advance of Memorial Day is a Big Deal.) For those of you who've seen the end pages that Mónica Armiño did for the book, doesn't the Belmar logo look a lot like it?

Wonderful EVERYTHING, but especially #4. The Jersey shore will always be part of my soul. I love that you're going to the opening, and that you've been asked to read your book! So. Happy!

And that reminds me! Now that GrandWilliam is old enough NOT to tear the pages, I can give him a copy for his collection. Huzzah! Always a celebration, buying a new book. :)
