When I started this blog, I thought it would be fun to not only blog about writing in general, but to document the road from unknown writer to published author. Not whining, or slamming agents that reject me, but a positive look at what I learn as I blindly go through the process.
I’ve read a lot of literary agent blogs and one in particular made me stop and think. Kristin Nelson (Nelson Literary Agency) brought up the point that if she checked out a blog where a person had a lot of rejections, she might be less likely to say ‘yes’ to a project. Good point.
I have yet to begin querying, but I hope to get there soon. Until I have an agent and publishing deal, I won’t write about the query process. There are two agent blogs I check almost every day. If I ever get the courage, I’d like to submit my query to them. If you haven’t already, I recommend checking them out. Janet Reid’s blog has TONS of information on the query process. Reading Query Shark is a must!
