This is the one thing that always works at conferences #SFWC

You’ve got your pitch, you’ve got your manuscript. You’ve got the hustle and the flow. All that’s left is to seal the deal.

Joyce Carol Oates had the following to say regarding breaking into the publishing world.

This is sound advice for beginners, but it’s not an invitation to be lazy: A good writer should always be curious, constantly looking around for new and more powerful people to sleep with. Set small goals for yourself at first. Agents can be valuable lays. Even fucking someone’s assistant can be worthwhile if he or she has an editor’s ear.”

Oh JCo… you so cray.

Take a grain of salt, get some rest — we’ll see you Thursday.
