Adventures in Austin

I'm back from Austin, and let me tell you, it's hard to get my boots back on the ground. The organizers of the SCBWI Destination Publication Conference should run the world. If they did, I'd get driven/escorted/herded through my day by fabulously funny, warm and lovely people and I'm sure I'd be out of my pajamas by now.  (Although, I have to say that if I ate barbecue and Cheetos and Texas Longhorn chocolate on a regular basis, I would ONLY be able to wear pajamas...and sleep.)

If you need details pronto you should check out Kirby Larson's post and Texas Sweetheart P.J. Hoover's report.

As for me, today it's pictures only.

reading All the World
(The two page spread of "All the world is old and new" makes me cry every time.)

PJ (Tricia) Hoover shows me the fur coats hanging in this innocent looking wardrobe at the home of Austin SCBWI Wonderful People Meredith and Clay Davis.

I decide to investigate.

Where did I go?


I return, Queen Sara.

More later, friends... 


  1. It was so amazing meeting you, Sara! And doesn't that wardrobe rock? I can imagine being tucked in a cozy chair reading in Narnia :)

  2. "All the world is everything . . . everything is you and me" is what does me in every time.

    I'm quite envious to hear that you and Liz (and Cheryl?) got to stay up late sipping wine. Maybe in June . . . .

  3. Oh my goodness. That wardrobe is fabulous! So glad you had a great time.

  4. I am so ridiculously excited because I GET TO BUY A WARDROBE.

    Yes. I am weird. But you all know why it makes me kind of sniffly. I want one like THAT one...

  5. Thanks for a helpful critique and great talk. So what did you decide about Texas barbecue?

  6. Now *that* is a cool wardrobe.

  7. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Texas. Thanks for coming down!
