Today's theme is EARTH, because sometimes, using everything in our world for inspiration, you CREATE your OWN FANTASY WORLD for the stories you write.

If you do, then you'll be as excited as I am to hear Holly Black's 9:30am keynote "Examining the Strange: The Basics of Fantasy Writing." For a peek at the incredible intellect and creativity we're in store for, read my interview with Holly here!
