It's Time For Another PITY PARTY!

In about a week, all the somebodies in the kidlit world will be basking in glow of all the really big somebodies at the 2010 SCBWI National Winter Conference in New York.

Sadly, I am STILL a nobody.

Therefore, it's time for another pity party. (FYI, you can see our first pity party here, which I only hosted on my LJ blog. This time I'm hosting here as well.) Please come join me, all you lovely nobodies! This week we will be sitting on our couches at home, eating bon bons while we allow small sighs (and even a few tears) to escape as we think about all the fun we are missing.

And, of course, at my pity parties I like all of us to know exactly what we are missing. So, here's all the links I could find, so we can weep and wail together.

The Official 2010 SCBWI Winter Conference Website: the official place we can check in to see what the somebodies have planned.
The SCBWI Official Blog: here we can get up-to-the-minute info on everything we are missing.
Twitter Search: in case you want to follow the somebodies tweeting about the fine time they are having while we are left at home.
The Conference Schedule: so we can know at any given hour what the somebodies are learning without us.
The Faculty: all the really big somebodies

I hope you'll all show up to my pity party. There WILL be awards, you know! If you don't believe me, check out our first official Pity Party awards. (Sure, they are useless, nobody awards, but they are OUR useless, nobody awards.)

Those were good times. Good times.

Anyway, check in anytime this week and leave a comment about what you are particularly upset about missing. As for me, gee. I would really really really like to be there to hear Libba Bray and Jane Yolen speak (Jane Yolen, if you must know, is a late addition and isn't on the schedule, but you'll hear all about it if you check out SCBWI's blog). That and I'd like to see New York at least once before I die. So I'm totally whining about the fact that the conference is in NY. *pouts*

Enjoy the pity party, everyone!


  1. Me too! Still a nobody with my pathetic face pressed up against the window. Libba Bray would be tops on my list...and all the fun meeting people I see only online.

  2. Hi Ghost Girl! I'm glad we nobodies can stick together. And you're right, it would be nice to meet all my online buddies. Maybe someday...

    Thanks for joining the party!

  3. Thanks, Terry. Most of us are hanging out on my LJ blog, but I'm glad to see this place is heating up a bit.

    Enjoy the party!
