Yesterday I got a lot done - I started the new chapter that I'm going to have to put into "The Movie Star's Very Personal Assistant", plus I worked more on my plot for "Snowed in With a Millionaire", the book I'm going to write for NaNoWriMo starting November 1st. The plotting is going verrry slowly - but I'm worried that if I don't plot the story out to the end that I'll lose steam during NaNoWriMo and not finish writing my novel! Then again, I'm also thinking that maybe if I write my story up to the point where my plotting ends (I have 36 pages of plot right now) that maybe I'll be able to figure out what needs to happen as I write.
Today I will share with you a very informative video from authors Christie Craig and Faye Hughes of WriteWithUs.net. This video is filled with advice for aspiring authors about making the perfect pitch to an editor or agent about your manuscript.
So, to recap:
- Don't think you have to tell every detail
- Talk about your Hero and Heroine's goals.
- Always act professionally
- Be confident in yourself and your work
- Let your passion shine
Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!
