During the Opening Ceremonies at the 2012 SCBWI Conference in LA this past weekend, each of the faculty were asked to introduce themselves and say one word to the 1,234 of us who were waiting with bated breath.

I was able to jot some of those words down and thought I’d create a wordle for you to enjoy. I thought it was interesting how “SCBWI” and “community” ended up appearing so prominently in the design when I clicked “go”.

Coincidence? I think not.

This was my first time at the SCBWI in LA and I have to say: Mind? Blown. I am looking at my notebook which I used for notes and such at each session. It is so full of amazing memories, incredible people, and so. much. learning.

If I could add some of my own words to this cluster, they would be: Powerful. Moving. Tears. Meaning. Honesty. Pay Attention. Lucky. Peers. and Aayyyyyy (see below).

Childhood fantasy #4 realized at last.

I’m sure I’ll be distilling what I’ve learned forever, and hopefully will be able to share some of it with you here on the blog. But right now I am still just so overcome with the experience. It was truly something else.
