So I signed up for a query and a manuscript critique at Killer Nashville. Both I will receive this morning. I’m a little bit butterflies in the belly.
I also signed up for verbal pitches. Think godzilla in the belly. I’ve practiced. I’ve gone over my work. I know my story. I love my characters.
But I tend to ramble when nervous. And face to face interaction with a stranger=nervous for me.
I am not sure how many agents/editors I will have the opportunity to pitch to, but I hope I do my story justice. I guess it is better to talk than to freeze up. I just have to pretend this is a job interview. I am good at interviewing, or at least I think that’s why I’ve been hired several times over. 🙂
I’ve read blog posts on dos and don’ts so I should be prepared. I am prepared. I can do this. Wish me luck!
Have you ever been super nervous before a pitch session? How did you deal with it? What are your biggest stumbling blocks?
