STATUS: Aloha! Need I say more?
What’s playing on the iPod right now? Kokomo by Beach Boys
Here is a shot of me working this morning before the conference officially begins!
It’s a tough life but somebody has to do it. I’ve got my feet up and my netbook (thank you Ally and Leslie!) ready to roll. As I’ve been working on this little netbook, I’ve had 3 different people stop and ask me about it.
I should get a kickback from Verizon or HP or something. Even though it’s a brand new toy, I’ve got my eye on that new Apple iBook as well if they ever release it this fall.
So what’s happening today at the conference? Opening ceremonies and then the agents and editors are free until the one-on-one consultations begin at 2 pm. I imagine a lot of attendees are nervously awaiting that.
Just remember, keep your pitch short—under 2 minutes—and allow time for the agent to ask questions. Don’t worry. We are pros at this and we’ll do our best to help you relax and make it a good experience (and to pull the necessary info out of you if you botch it!) Grin.
Still, you want to be able to talk about your novel easily so simply practice in the mirror a two sentence sum up of it so you are ready.
Have a great Labor Day weekend folks. I know I will.
