Fridays With Agent Kristin: Episode 1 - How To Become A Literary Agent

STATUS: Through snow and more snow, the show must go on!

Without further ado, I'm delighted to debut in 2012 a series of video blog rants called Fridays With Agent Kristin. And I hope you cut me some slack with this first one because let me tell you, this was hard to do.

Let me take that back. It was really easy to do a crappy video clip. To do a decent one took me an hour and 15 or 20 takes to nail a clip that was even remotely worth taking on to the editing stage.

I have a WHOLE new appreciation for anyone in the broadcasting arts. Seriously! You have to concentrate on pacing, breathing, every word, every pause, and oddly enough, every blink of the eyes.

If you blink normally during a video clip, you'll look very strange in the finished product. Good thing I didn't know what I was getting into when I started. If I did, it would have never left the idea stage.

So, welcome to Episode 1: How to Become A Literary Agent.

And if you'd like to suggest some topics for me to tackle in future episodes, that's what the comment section is for. *grin*
