Adding up the hours it takes to do a daily submission, I realized I could go to a conference every week in the same amount of time, if I could afford it, (which I can’t), and meet interesting people, as in agents. Conferences also come with cookies and coffee and sometimes even croissants, and they tend to take place in interesting big cities or beautiful locations. Although I make pretty good coffee, my office is not beautiful or interesting or even walking distance to a bookstore, or even a Starbucks, or anything I would walk to, except my neighbor, the doc. screenwriter, and my neighbor the artist. I really meant that, Anna and Anita. I’m not just saying that because you read my blog now and then.
