I mentioned before that I'll be attending my first writing conference in May, the LDStorymakers conference. I'm a little nervous. Especially because I also signed up to pitch to an agent. Eep! Cue nervous nail biting and embarrassing armpit sweating. I have no idea what I'm supposed to do while at the conference. They are offering a bunch of free workshops and I'm not sure which ones to attend. I would love to know what your experiences were at your first conference. And if you will also be there in May, please let me know. I'm scared I'm going to end up being the weirdo in the corner holding my notepad against my chest with wide eyes while I watch everyone else mingle and have fun. I'm attending the Saturday workshops, so if you'll be there, let's meet up. Please. And also, any suggestions on pitching to an agent are much appreciated. Not sure how all that works, I've got the gist of it, but more tips are welcome.
