Happy First Augustly Friday!
Today, two questions for comment box banter:
AGENTED AUTHORS: Is your agent editorial or hands-off? Why does your agent's style work well for you?
UNAGENTED AUTHORS: As you travel the wearisome Road of Queries, have you thought about which kind of agent suits you? Editorial or Not-so-much?
Share your thoughts!
Because it's struck me full-force how DEEPLY I appreciate my agent's editorial input. It's clear from his approach to my work that he's invested in me. That he sees value in slogging through the process of Getting Things Right.
His unflagging support and presence in my write-a-day world helps keep me afloat. He is agent, advocate, sounding board, mentor.
I didn't realize, pre-agent, how important this kind of editorial support would be. Honestly? I'm thriving. Even in the midst of occasional angst bouts and brain drain.
