So today I drove five. Four on the first trip and one on the last. The first four consisted of two agents and two editors. The second trip was a book consultant. Every plane was late, by about thirty minutes. Tomorrow I drive an editor back to the airport, then on Sunday it’s two agents and an editor.
Three things I learned:
- Six hours of driving and waiting and waiting must be broken up by at least one bathroom break.
- A bowl of oatmeal, although filling, will not hold you off until 5 p.m.
- Even after years of attending conferences, running conferences and chauffeuring for conferences, I still believe agents and editors are nice people.
