My tip this Tuesday (on Wednesday) is... go to a SCBWI international conference! It was a truly great experience. I have a ton to do this week, but I'll try to find time in the upcoming weeks to share some of the notes I took. Definitely check out the Official SCBWI Conference Blog if you haven't already. They've pretty much got it covered.

Me and Suzanne Young being dorky!
The editor and publisher panels (hard to see, sorry!).
