Where in the World has Kim been?

That's a good question, and one I can probably answer, but it won't be quick and believe me, it might even be painful.

Since July's World Cup post, I've been to Ocean City, New Jersey, Los Angeles, CA for the SCBWI Conference--pure awesomeness by the way (I'll post photos in the upcoming months--you know just me hanging with Stephen Chbosky, Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Jay Asher, Thirteen Reason's Why), and the day after LA, I left for three weeks to camp in the Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee. During the fall, I coordinated and ran Eastern Pa's Fall Philly Event, and spent my afternoons and weekends as my kiddos personal chauffeur. I've also been elbow deep in revisions for my New Adult, And Then He--and squeak: It's ALMOST ready to submit. I'm a little crazy and A LOT neurotic, but I swear to you I will be submitting it soon. Darn thing won't publish itself.

And shiver me timbers and call me stubborn, but after the Fall Philly event, I went back to work on the beginning of my Young Adult Contemporary Realistic, Starr Fall. Starr's story begs to be told, and she won't be quiet about it. She kicks my ass every so often to remind me that I need to submit her book if she's ever going to kick the Organization's ass. And da, da, dahhhhh, I think I've finally got the beginning Starr Fall was meant to have, and after my NY SCBWI intensives on Friday, I'll find out if I'm heading in the write direction... (You got that, right?)

So tomorrow I leave for the NYSCBWI conference, and I can't wait. It's my second conference as Co-Regional Advisor for Eastern PA, and let me tell you, SCBWI membership has it's privileges. I get to meet and hang out with hundreds of writers, illustrators, and creative types who LOVE books as much as I do.

AND you want to know what makes it even better? My Ink Sisters, Donna Boock and Alison Green Myers, are coming with me!! Eeeeppppp!! Inspiration will be ours!!


Off to pack my journals, notebooks, and pens...(Glad I stocked up on my office supplies.)

Stay tuned for details on the NY15SCBWI!!

Write on,
Kim

INTERVIEW WITH K.M. WALTON, YA FEST & HARRY POTTER

Dear Alison and readers, Have I got a surprise for you...Guess who stopped by to chat? Any guesses? No peeking at the title. Wait, I guess it's too late. Okay, I'll tell you anyway, KM Walton, the YA Author of all of these books...




Hi K.M.,

Thanks so much for stopping by to talk to me. Care for a chai latte or a glass of wine? It’s Friday. Let’s go for the wine.
Excellent choice. I’ll have one as well. So tell me, when did you become a writer? Despite my debut novel releasing when I was 44, my stacks of journals from childhood onward prove that I’ve always been a writer.
Yeah, it took me a while to figure out what I really wanted to be when I grew up. The bulging folder filled with scraps of paper and napkins of all my “book” ideas and “story” ideas didn’t make me realize my true calling until six or seven years ago. So tell me, what do you love about writing? Possibility. I’m a wildly anticipatory person, always have been. A dreamer for sure. Writing, with all of its glorious poss…
