Look, up in the sky!

It's a bird.

It's a plane.

It's Super Conference Attendees!

Today's theme is AIR, for two great reasons:

1. Ellen Hopkin's 1:30pm keynote "Not For The Faint Of Heart: The Climb To The Top" should take us to the heights. Check out my exclusive SCBWI Team Blog interview with Ellen to get a preview of what a smart and inspiring speaker she's going to be!

2. Tonight's "Blue Moon Ball" - Inspired by the moon (up there in the... uh, air of... space...go with me on this), and the color blue, and the excuse to dress up and get down... and boogie!

Remember to check out our Official SCBWI Conference Blog for all the blog updates throughout the day!

And, for your twittering pleasure, SCBWI Team Blog is tweeting with the tag

Yesterday there were literally 100s of tweets and fistfuls of PHOTOS throughout the day, offering bite-sized "headline" coverage of things that didn't make it onto the main conference blog.

Be sure to check out all the great links to my SCBWI Team Blog posts AND PHOTOS FROM THE CONFERENCE FLOOR AND LOBBY in the UPDATE added to yesterday's post!

It was so great to finally meet you in person Lee! And wowsa - you completely out-danced me - despite the dress that moved of its own accord!
