A (not good) Wednesday poem...

Thank You for Your Time


Introduce yourself

be professional

be conversational.


Summarize

give me the hook

the characters

the plot

the tone

the stand-out, fresh, unique perspective.

But please

for goodness' sake

be brief.


Did someone refer you?

Have we met?


Don't call your work a bestseller

but tell me which bestseller it's like.

Be confident.

No empty bragging please.


Be cool.


No pressure.
