SCBWI '09 Rocks

I started each morning looking out at this. Not bad, right? The new millennium fountain put me in the mood for the California room and the speakers that were non-stop funny, inspirational, and informative.

Lin Oliver set the tone each morning just as she always does with her natural comedic talent and welcoming warmth.

Here she holds forth on some of the best jokes. The theme for jokes was the economic hard times and how they might affect children's stories.

" Geppetto uses Pinocchio for fire wood."
"Snow White lays off three of the seven dwarves."

You get the idea. More pics and comments later. Gotta unpack.


  1. Welcome back Lee. Can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. sounds like everyone had a great time, and it was a fabulous conference!

  3. Yes, welcome back and looking forward to what you have to share. Lin Oliver is great, isn't she? So, so funny.


Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
