The theme was steampunk thanks to the keynote speaker's latest series. Quite a few people were decked out in the full garb, but I just constructed a few pieces of steampunk inspired jewelry: A ring that I kept getting caught on EVERYTHING and eventually took off, and a necklace.
Here's a fellow I never dreamed I'd meet, but I did! And I cut myself out of the picture because, well, with this face you wouldn't be looking at me anyway.
The Keynote Speaker, SCOTT WESTERFELD!
He totally made that face on purpose. Did you take a picture with him too? Let's compare.
Also met the hilarious Maureen Johnson.
Met some other authors too, but wasn't able to do pictures with them. I'll just say that Jackson Pearce is PRECIOUS! Mary E. Pearson is SUPER nice, and I also got my copy of Will Grayson, Will Grayson signed by David Levithan though I didn't actually get to meet him... but I'm not talking about that, remember?! STOP!
And let's not forget, my favorite author, STEPHANIE PERKINS!!
After I read Anna and the French Kiss earlier this year, I pretty much forced my mom (and all my friends) to read it, and she inhaled it. It was fun having another fangirl along with me this weekend!
And... Stephanie remembered me. So I don't have to tell you other fangirls how freaking cool that is. ;)
Had so much fun meeting bloggers I haven't met before, making new friends, and seeing old ones!
As always, the writing inspiration is in FULL SWING. I've kicked out around 3,500 words this weekend. Anyone else feeling it?!
