I’m Thinking about Networking Today

Thursday, March 18, 2010

I know, it’s after 4 p.m. and I’m just now posting. But as I mentioned Monday, this was going to be a busy week, and today was the busiest day of all.

I had lunch with my agent, the inimitable Chip MacGregor, this afternoon and in and amongst the myriad of topics we discussed was networking. So, since I missed out on writing a blog post this afternoon, I thought I’d flash back to a couple of weeks ago, to my “spotlight on” series and put the spotlight on the two series I did on networking.

Networking (July/August 2006)
Gas–$3, Book–$12, Networking–Priceless
Networking–What is it, really?
Networking = Name Recognition = Marketing
Networking: Addendum to Building Name Recognition
Networking: Stumbling Block #1–Fear

Networking: Stumbling Block #3—Following Up
Dos and Don’ts of Networking

Networking Refresher (September 2007) (includes more information about networking at writing conferences)
Networking–A Refresher Course
Networking Refresher–The “Soft Sell”
Networking Refresher–Building Name Recognition
Networking Refresher–Is This Seat Taken?
Networking Refresher–Face-to-face editor/agent meetings
Networking Refresher–When Did We Stop Sending Notes?

    What I wouldn’t give to have lunch with Chip and just pick his brain. In a nice way, of course, so the gray matter isn’t completely removed from the skull. 😉

    Hmmm…Jason, there’s a story there… 🙂

    My networking skills completely stink. I find it difficult to overcome my very introverted nature where networking about writing is concerned. Guess that gives me a goal to work on (like I need another one).
