SCBWI-LA pre-conference party

Oh man, those SCBWI-LA planners won’t know what hit ‘em.


Nineteen (19!) wild and wacky women joined our pre-conference dinner party, and boy howdy, let me just say…that group was fierce! (Translation: a whole lotta beautiful, leave-you-breathless fun.)


Oh wait, why am I telling you? You were there, remember? Here’s photographic proof that everyone on my f-list was with us in spirit. 


(Get it? “In spirit(s)?” As in, immersed in Cathy’s martini…)

And we got each of you a drink! 


The party was also a perfect send-off for me: I’m going to be away from LJ for the next 10 days or so. I’m going to be researching and writing and vacationing, albeit not in equal proportions, and not in that order. I’ll see you soon. In the meantime, behave yourselves keep doing whatever it is that you do best. xoxo


  1. That looks like a FUN time! Have a great “vacation”. πŸ™‚ You sound like me. Even on vacation, I have to get some writing/research in or I go crazy.

    Hope you have a relaxing time.

  2. Glad to hear that a great time was had by all. Thanks for taking us along, Melodye. Wish I could have been there in person.

    Hope your research goes well. Have a wonderful vacation!

  3. I suspect this means you are long gone from LA/LJ Land. I am reading these posts Saturday morning. I miss you already.

    G-d love you but the photo of you and Cathy I is gaaaawwwwjus. You two look blonde Greek Goddesses. But with DEPTH. {}

    My eyes are shot to heck but I hope and pray my name is typed somewhere on those Lists. I wanna be where the Writers Are. {}

    Someday, someway,
    Pamela, praying your dinner was a super success– and I am sure it was

  4. So great to have finally met you, Melodye. πŸ™‚

    Next time you’ll have to stay longer!!!
