This weekend is the CNYRW Mini-Conference, featuring speaker CJ Lyons on Putting Your Character In The Driver's Seat. Last night she gave an informative workshop on Breaking Free Of The Slush Pile--a workshop designed on improving your query letters to catch an editor or agent's eye. Did you know that most editors look at your query for a matter of seconds? It's crucial to keep your query short, succinct, and compelling, and CJ showed us how with examples from our own work. Today's all-day workshop promises to be just as exciting, and CJ is a wonderful and accomplished lady. I look forward to learning from her today!
Don't forget, Earth Hour is coming up on March 28th! That's the day businesses and homes turn out their lights for one hour (8:30 PM local time wherever you are) to show their support in the fight against global warming. So wherever you are, switch off those lights for a little while to help your planet. Go green!
