HI everyone! I’m back with another update about my journey into becoming a traditionally published author.
Last week I went to my first writer’s conference since college and I had a blast. It was the SanDiego Writer’s Workshop, which was totally digital this year, and I’m quite grateful for that. I had my query letter edited, and I interviewed with three agents. The best news of the conference is that every agent I interviewed with asked me for pages! They also all told me how far they are behind on going through their queries, so I know it’s going to be a bit of a wait yet.
I plan not to wait idly, however. I plan to join up with #PitDark on Twitter and pitch my novel as much as I can. I’ve also been listening to podcasts about publishing and I plan to check out the #MomsWritersClub ASAP. I’m also actively looking to expand my writer’s group–find some critique partners and BETA readers to help me refine my craft. If anyone wants to tag along, the Florida Writer’s Workshop is coming up as well, and I’m ready for it!
For those of you interested in writing workshops, here’s where I found these:
If anyone wants to give me some harsh but helpful feedback on my pitch before #PitDark, here it is:
