Hi, Miss Snark.
I’m attending the Backspace conference at The Algonquin on 11/3.
Do you have any advice from your perspective (beside NOT wearing a calico dress, for starters) to a querying newbie to make the most of the day? I’ll be sniffing every agent there (surreptitiously of course) for a faint gin scent, by the way.
Thanks very much.
Talk to everyone.
Be nice to everyone.
Expect people will be strange and don't take it personally.
Realize you'll hear five versions of "must do" and they all are different.
Quit sniffing for gin; Miss Snark won't be there.
Don't interrupt conversations; don't ask anyone to read your work.
The address for the Musuem of Modern Art is 11 West 53rd. Go. Art is inspiring. I love the green helicopter cause it is beautiful, fierce and practical.
