How to get an Agent (or not!)

A couple of years ago my agent went on maternity leave and I was agentless.  The process of trying to find another was joyless and humiliating.  Networking has never been my thing and - faced with someone I'm supposed to impress - I'm either tonguetied and stupid or develop verbal diaorrhea!   So this small video made me laugh and squirm all at the same time.  I've been there.  It's called The Elevator Pitch.

  1. Thanks for sharing that Kathy.
    It was fun and painful at the same time!
    I'm just tongue tired when it comes to talking about my work.
    Shy and introverted work quite well when writing. Not so well when promoting. I use my quota of being personable and networking for my day job.
