Confessions of a Junk Food Junkie

I bought a movie-sized box of Sugar Babies at the grocery store. Out of habit, I shook the box. Hmm. It didn't rattle. I was thinking "Bonus!" It must be filled so full it won't rattle. After I got home and anxiously opened the box, my heart sank. The Sugar Babies had melted into one huge glob and were stuck in the bottom of the box. It takes more than that to discourage a junk food junkie. It's taken me three days, but I've managed to eat most of them by digging them out with a knife. Next time I buy Sugar Babies, I'll know that if the box doesn't rattle, buy Milk Duds instead.

I am proud to display this on my blog. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest organizations for aspiring children's writers. Oklahoma has an incredibly talented group and I learn something from every event I attend. Do you want to write for children? Check out the Oklahoma website, sign up for the fall conference, and you will be one step closer to achieving your dream!
