10 min editor pitch...?
May 6, 2014 10:23 AM Subscribe
So, my (unpublished, agent-less) writer wife has one of those opportunities to sit down with a pro editor and agent for 10 minutes, each, at a convention.... what in the world do we do with an editor for 10 minutes?
Wife is on the second/third draft of a completed manuscript.

We are working on an agent pitch, and I feel we have a good grasp of that, but what do we do about the editor? I do not think they will have read any of the manuscript before the con, and I'm kinda at a loss as to what we should be preparing to get the best vale out of our 10 minutes. Between my wife & I we have a good grasp of spelling, comma usage, grammar, and even a decent, if amateur, grasp of plot and pacing... There are one or two scenes I would like input on, and a couple of questions I have prepared, but.... I don't think thats 10 minutes worth of time! yeep?
