Get your schmooze on

Tonight is the official launch event for the Goldfish website. I've been looking forward to this for the whole course. People from the MA with be there, some of the tutors and  hopefully a generous number of the literary agents we invited will come. This has in the past brought writers in the course the attention to agents that lead to publishing. I'm not going to get my hopes up too much but I am excited at the prospect. I invited like 90 agents, so that's the prospect of 90 who might have looked at my story. (Part of the reason I was keen on doing the invites) I know Paula sent out over a hundred as well. Sadly the College Arms has a fairly small capacity (but we couldn't get a grant to rent a place bigger, boo). Anywho, I'm excited. I won't be reading, James and Rob will be so I'll cheer my boys on. Looking forward to seeing James. He has passed on the last couple of seminars so I haven't seen him in weeks. I'll have to make sure not to get into any trouble with Rob until after the event. Also  must make sure not to drink too heavily or make an ass of myself in any way. Finally I get to dress up and this with be my big Goldsmiths debut of my fabulous new hair. (I got my hair dyed and cut last Thursday) This is a terrible picture of me but it shows off the new do freshly done.

Okay I should probably get myself together and get some reading done to pass the time productively. One quick question...
...how does one schmooze?

Omigod! Charlotte just did a little 'practice schmooze' and as an agent drilled me about my writing and I did horribly! I'm 10 times more nervous now. ACK!!!!
