the editor interview approacheth!
so yeah, my interview with the editor is RAPIDLY approaching and I got nothing. I'm so afraid that I am going to walk in and draw a big fat blank. I've shined up my 3 line pitch, distilled what my novel is about and feel like I know my market but I still feel unprepared. HATE THAT! maybe because I have no idea of what to expect. I know she's just a person but this is the closest I have come to a publishing professional and I'm nervous.
it's really funny because I've met celebrities, been on national TV, spoken in front of huge crowds, been in court and done all kinds of other scary things but this is by far the scariest. it is like a first date to the millionth power.
