Christie Craig's rejections author of Divorced, Desperate and Delicious
I had a good time today. I went to Yellow Rose RWA Luncheon and had a great time. It was good to get out of my introvert's cave and just talk to people. Better yet talk to fellow writers which is probably why I had as fun as I did.

I learned a lot and gave my very first pitch to an editor in the Romance genre. Wow, I wasn't planning on it so I had no time to be nervous and it didn't go as bad as I expected but I blew it. (In my mind at least.) Deb from SourceBooks didn't laugh and gave suggestions so it wasn't like I visibly blew it but as I was talking in my head, the critical bitch that I am to myself was saying "Yeah Casse, way to screw it up dumbie!" But it wasn't as bad as I make it seem...it actually went very well. I am a major perfectionist.
But above all I am glad that I met some amazing women, picked up some amazing books that you will see reviewed at some point over at CatholicKittie's Litter Box...Scoop Daily! I learned a lot and heard 2 amazing speakers and met 2 awesome editors. It was all around a new experience and fun.
Christie Craig and her rejections she let her cat "piss on"- Hilarious!
But I am glad to be home and able to just be Cassandra now. Casse is fun but I just like to be at home sometimes and be my anti-social, slightly neurotic, very introverted, OCDish, quirky self without having to try and "look" and "act" normal.
Well time to decompress I have to step into my real world tomorrow at work, where I am not Casse the Romance writer I am just Cassandra the girl behind the customer service counter. lol
Oh yea, at a completely different event my C.P Connie did NOT blow her pitch and got a request for a full! This MS is amazing so I am not surprised and I won't be surprise when she gets signed either. Yall are going to love it when you read it! Go Connie!
Keep writing, reading and sharing,
