Re: How to meet agents at a conference?

I think the most important thing is to try not to force it. Being an agent at a conference is kind of like being a piece of cheese at a mouse convention, and agents tend to kind of have their guard up a tad. Just be natural, be yourself, let your pitch stand for itself, and trust that at the end of ...

This is a pretty excellent Juventus/Monaco game so far.

Re: Soccer!

The Manchesters both drop points! How did they let that happen? Liverpool is breathing a sigh of relief.

Are you reading more or fewer books than 5 years ago?

There are now so many distractions out there. Our cell phones are veritable distraction devices, and they're only getting better.

Are you reading more or fewer books than you were five years ago?

Personally, I'm sad to admit that it's fewer. But I'm trying to change that. What about you?

What's the longest you've ever gone without writing?

Like, in your adult life, no need to count the first 10 years.

For me, I think the most is around three months. What about you?

Soccer!

Who watches soccer? Personally I find it to be the perfect sport to write to (at least, if I don't have a rooting interest in the teams that are playing). It's good background noise, you can pay attention when something exciting is happening, and it's on during prime writing time. I'm excited about ...
