The hardest part of attending a conference is stepping out of my introvert comfort zone and being in the midst of a crowd of strangers. Yet, there is a rush I cannot describe that accompanies doing something I’ve never done before. I plan to walk in there with my head held high, which isn’t very high since I’m a short person, but that’s beside the point…. I’m going to walk in there with confidence and soak up every ounce of the experience. Though pitching my novel to an agent is a huge opportunity, I don’t want it to be the sole focus of this event and miss the other great aspects. I’ll be learning new skills that I’ll surely blog about in the near future, I’ll be meeting many likeminded people and who knows, I may leave there with new lifelong friends. So, my advice, whatever new thing you’re doing this week, this month or this year, soak in every aspect of the moment.
