In this one year's time, I now know some people because:
- I joined a writers' critique group
- I've been to a few local programs featuring speakers who are writers
- I started blogging and have some followers
- I've been reading and following a dozen blogs and have connected with other writers
I've already booked my room at the hotel but am willing to share with another writer/illustrator, if someone is wanting to pay half the rate. I'm a light sleeper, so a non-snoring female would work best for me. And I'd prefer a non-smoker because residue smoke smell can activate my asthma (yeah, yeah, I know that's TMI about me- sorry!)
Soooooooo,if you're a SCBWI member, or a non-member, or you know someone coming to the conference, let them know there's a spare bed waiting!
