Blogger, Google+,Facebook, Twitter, and Pumpkin Soup = A few hours with Two Authors

This morning Catherine Carvell kindly invited me over to her place to discuss how best to optimize social media to gain traffic for our respective blogs. So after a couple of hours we successfully synced our blogs to facebook, twitter, google+ & everything else you can name. 

Catherine's office is ultra tidy and organized, the complete opposite of my workspace. Taking a place of pride on one of her shelves is the 2010 Pitch Award that she won this year when she went to the SCBWI WA retreat in Rottnest. I'm sure it's only the first of many to come. :)

Famished  after a couple of hours of social media coordination, we then lunched on yummy freshly baked bread from Cedele and Catherine's famous Pumpkin Soup- YUMILICIOUS! And we topped off the meal with some really yummy biscuits for dessert.

Post lunch we decided to revisit a project we have been working on for some time. I don't know how we got anything done because Catherine's ideas had us in stitches the whole time. It looks like it's going to be hilarious!

Then it was time for Catherine to head out on the school run and I headed out for my afternoon walk at the Botanical Gardens. Thanks for a great day, Catherine, and for my back scratcher from Cambodia. It's great, the best!

I'll be catching up with Catherine and most of the SCBWI Singapore group tomorrow when we head out for dinner with Jacqueline Harvey. We're really looking forward to it. Till then people!
