Writerly Wednesday ~~ Darrelyn's Pitch Fest Debacle

If you haven't met my friend Darrelyn Saloom, you really need to! She's a home girl Who Dat citizen, but better than that, she's a great writer and person.

Read all about her travels and terrors at a big conference agent pitch fest in a three-part guest blog series on Writer's Digest Jane Friedman's, THERE ARE NO RULES column here. [Scroll down at the site for parts 1 and 2.] You'll find great what-not-to-do tips to guide you on your own future pitch session.

Happy New Year, Angie!

Angie, I took the side road and read Jane's pitch session to Dinty Moore in the elevator. Frankly, a bit too sophomoric for my tastes. Ouch! I must be too old for this.

Happy New year to a neighbor from Livingston, La. Just a skip and a hop down the road. Blessings!

Sounds like a great read! Thanks for the link, I will check it out. Wonder if she's related to Judge Kaliste Saloom from Lafayette? Wishing you a happy, healthy New Year, filled with bon' temps, cher! Cheers!

Thanks, Angie, I'm just now seeing that you posted all three. Part 4 comes out on Monday. Btw, rosaria, it was me, Darrelyn, who pitched Dinty in the Overby Center conference room (not the elevator). I'm the sophomoric one, not Jane, she's my publisher. The sad thing is that I'm probably older than you. So old I actually like being called sophomoric. It's like someone asking to see my I.D. Now THAT hasn't happened in ages. :)

Thanks for reading everyone. Happy New Year!
