I’m a bit late. Okay, okay I’m more than a little late. I guess it’s more like seven days late. *hanging my head in shame*
But I am here.
So, here comes my great insecurity for the past week – going to my first writing conference. I spent this past weekend with over four hundred other writers, agents, editors, etc… discussing my craft, making my first agent pitch (whew, was I nervous about that), and connecting with other writers in my area.
After all of my insecurity, and a few additional beats of my heart (that sounds cheesy even to me) 😉 it turns out that I had a wonderful experience. I participated in a fantastic critique group, connected with several writers who I can continue to network with, and I successfully pitched my book to an agent. Let me say that again a little louder: I SUCCESSFULLY PITCHED MY BOOK TO AN AGENT. After hearing my pitch, one of the attending agents has agreed to read my first three chapters, and…
I don’t know where it will lead, but all in all it was a very exciting first conference.
So, I guess the title for this entry could be: A Less Insecure Writer Make Up Post. 🙂
