I've Got to Relax!

Too distracted to blog. I have my SCBWI dinner tonight with Stephen Barbara. It's not just with him. It's with Tina Wexler, Steve Meltzer, and Maureen Sullivan. I didn't mean to downplay the importance of any of these people. It's just that when I signed up, I didn't even realize they would all be there. It was originally a small, intimate group, but somehow dinners got combined. Now, there will be fourteen at the table, which should make me even more tongue-tied than usual. YIKES! I'll just have to have a glass of wine and remind myself of my new mantra.

Just have fun and enjoy! Remember, agents and editors are people, too. ;-)

You'll be great. They're just people and you and your talent will shine.

Or you can convince yourself they are as uncomfortable as you are... maybe.

Tina is the first agent I queried. She was polite and really nice throughout, from her initial request and eventual rejection.
