RWA Orlando update 8:50 am

For those of you here at the conference, I need to remind you of something.

If your chapter or group has organized a get together and invited professionals, take advantage of it. They spent a lot of time, money and energy to get the agents and editors there to talk to you. Sitting in a corner, staring at the person and saying to yourself, "I bet they don't want to be disturbed," is wrong. They came for that reason.

The same goes for the editors and agents you see in the hallway. Now many of them are waiting to run some place or meet with people, in most cases, they do have time for you to introduce yourself and say hi. If you are at the bar and someone comes in looking for a table, offer to have them join you. Take the initiative. Wall flowers do not make it in this business.
