Friday Night at the Question Emporium
If you were a newbie writer getting ready for a one-on-one 10 minute critique session with an agent at a conference, would you come in with a list of questions, or just with an open mind and a pencil to take notes? I'm going to my first conference next week, and I would like to make the most out of it.
You're asking whether you should come prepared or just wing it?
Let's take a vote about which answer gets a resounding YES!
(pause for counting fins)
Yes, come prepared.
Type out the list of questions.
Make TWO copies.
Give one to the agent, and keep one.
That way the agent can see ALL your questions, and can answer the ones s/he feels are most urgent first.
One of the questions should NOT be: can I send you my book.
