So now that it's the week of my BIG talk at Arcadia, I'm finally starting to feel nervous! Like really, really nervous. Because I mean...people are coming...on a Friday night...to hear me...TALK! OMG!
Now for the record, I'm one of those freaks of nature who is NOT afraid of public speaking. I've talked in front of hundreds of people. I'm cool with that. I've even read my own work outloud to a bunch of people--hello graduate thesis night!
But this is the first time people are coming specifically to hear just me, and what I have to say. And granted, a lot of this night could turn into me talking about myself--which come on, I can do that--I'm an expert on me. But I don't know how helpful blabbing on about how I wanted to write stories since I was 3, or how I wrote an epic story about polygamy and psychic fish when I was 9 is really going to be informative to anyone.
So tell me this...if you were coming to a talk called "Breaking Into The Biz: Everything I Wish I'd Known About Publishing" what would you want to learn? What questions would you ask? And maybe you guys can ask me some questions now? Because it would help and I can answer them in a practice post. And I will love you and send you virtual hugs and vegan cookies through the interwebs if you have things to ask me.
So...fire away! Anything...writing, revising, querying, agent revisions...whatever I can answer I will!
