Preparation DFWCON: The Experience

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.

DFWCON.org  provides more tips on how to make the most of your experience at the writer’s conference.

Preparation DFWCON: The Manuscript

The most important document you’ll bring with you beside the query letter, business cards, a positive attitude, and maybe the little extrovert hidden deep inside of you is your manuscript. If an agent happens to be interested, you’ll want to ensure you have polished it up real nice. Here are some sites that’ll aid you in the editing process as well as an editing excerpt from my upcoming “how to” book, “Finish that Manuscript You Started” Even if you aren’t attending a conference, these are great tools, especially if you need to polish your manuscript before sending it to an editor, which can potentially save money on editing cost too.

Preparation DFWCON: The Query

One of the most important aspects of attending a conference of any sort is being prepared. Yesterday we covered The Pitch. Today, we’ll cover the query letter. From what I learned thus far, it should be to the point, and to remember you are selling your manuscript. I found some sites that aid in writing the query letter, while giving examples. Feel free to add more suggestions  or sites recommendations in the comments. Tomorrow, we’ll discuss the manuscript.

Preparation DFWCON: The Pitch

 

First, I apologize. I’ve been M.I.A. lately. I’ve been preparing my manuscript for my pitch session at the upcoming DFW Writers Conference (DFWCON). In addition, I’m practicing my pitch and writing my query letter. Today, I’d like to share with you a few sites that have help me with, THE PITCH, which could easily be mistaken for another word. HA! Recently, I attended Writers Bloc luncheon and had the pleasure to hear, Rosemary Clement speak. She offers some tips on her site. In addition, I found these helpful sites. Feel free to add tips and/or site recommendations in the comments below. In addition, if you are attending the conference, comment below or email me at Ebbyslane@gmail.com. Perhaps, we can practice our pitch together.
