SCBWI event in Sebastopol, 7pm-9pm.. Am I excited? Absolutely! Am I nervous? you bet! It seems no matter how many times I do events or signings, I'm always as nervous as the first time. I guess I'm always afraid of two things:
1. Nobody will show up. *crickets*
2. My brain will betray me.. Like, right in the middle of a sentence my brain will go numb and I'll stand there, mouth open and nothing coming out. Although, I don't think i've ever had a problem shutting up before.
Or what if I talk too much and begin babbling and people think I'm crazy. Like, certifiably. My crazy girl sketch to the left --yeah, that is exactly how i'm afraid I'll be perceived.
And if you're in the area, it's not too late to register.
Wish me luck!
