Is Miley Cyrus right?
Down to the wire here...the writers conference is this weekend and with it my scheduled pitch with an agent. I'm only telling you this because you know it's my first pitch and no one gets accepted their very first time. (You do know that, right?)
Remember the motto:
HIGH PATIENCE...LOW EXPECTATIONS!
Anyway, major fail in the credibility department before I even sit down to pitch on Saturday because I went shopping for a collar shirt but did not purchase one. My writer friend said she heard collar shirts lend credibility, so I'm sure that's what all the successful authors will be wearing.
On the way home I heard "The Climb" on the radio. It's supposed to be a very motivational song unless you're pitching your novel this weekend and you hear lyrics like "sometimes I'm gonna have to lose" and "ain't about how fast I get there."
It's not about what's waitin' on the other side?!
Is it really about the climb???!!!
Please tell me Miley's wrong.
