Take A Risk Tuesday: Pitch to an Agent at a Conference
This week I'm preparing for my first real writing conference. Besides looking forward to meeting fellow writers, I am also totally pumped for all the workshops. (If I could only split myself into multiple people and attend them all.) Luckily, for me, one of my critique partners is going to join me. Yea, Annie!!
There are a few things I'm sweating about, however. One of them is my scheduled pitch with an agent. Even though I've researched what she's looking for, wrote the best pitch I can, practiced it a hundred times, I'm still biting my nails. (What's left of them.) The other event that has me pacing a bit, is the appointment with the book doctor. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally into hearing what others think will improve my work. It's those useless voices that love to rear their ugly heads and taunt me. Your plot is weak! Who do you think you're fooling? You're not a real writer...
So in spite of the unfriendly banter inside my head, I'm going. So there!
