The first person was called to pitch, and the next; my hands still shook. Then my turn: I clicked on the link and my computer froze. “Help,” I typed, my computer too old to support two chatrooms at once, and while they helped it froze again and crashed.
Control-alt-delete, shutdown, restart, hands shaking even more, I finally made my pitch. But I’m thinking face-to-face might’ve been less scary after all.
Thanks for your good wishes. They said I could send a writing "sample" so I'll let you know if anything comes of it.
