I have a message for you.
This made me laugh. Too familiar, esp. the buying books to be supportive part. Not that I wouldn’t have bought them anyway. I have no control over the book-buying line item in my budget.
This year I’m not going to RWA National or to Thrillerfest and financial consideration had a lot to do with those decisions. Am still considering the NJ conference. But so much great information is online now. One of the most overlooked resources, IMO, has got to be Alexandra Sokoloff’s writing articles on her blog. Hang on, let me go find the link.
Her articles about screenwriting tips for authors are awesome. And free.
Sweet! Good stuff! Thanks for the link. You’re right, so much is online now, there’s not much impetus to spend money.

Ink catridges alone could account for $500! I need a hard copy. I’ll be at the WLT conference. My first one. So, I’m getting ready for the pitch and to play ball. Ah, cheesy, but that’s all I’ve got this Monday morning.
It’s going to be my first WLT conference too. I think pitching to agents is a little overrated, but I’m still going to do, but I won’t be pitching as such, more just talking.
An editor in a book proposal class mentioned that most folks get agent from the query letter. I wonder how true that is? It will be good to mingle and learn at the conference. Tweet/See you there.
Oops. On my iPhone screen, I didn’t catch that I was incognito.
Cool! We can tweetup. Or whatever that is. 😉
I am in the novel writing contest at the beginning of the kick off ceremony, so you’ll see me there!
What I learned about pitching is: If the pitch is great, and the writing sucks, it won’t matter. If the pitch is so-so, but the writing kicks butt, SWEET!
So it’s all about the writing, and very little to do with the pitch.
