“They just started casting for the movie—when can you fly down to Hollywood?”
Despite all the times I’ve been told publishing is a highly competitive industry, I can’t help it. Every time I send a manuscript off to my agent contact, part of me can’t help but hope that this it. She is going to love it and so is everyone else in the entire world.
Not so much. I got some feedback regarding my latest manuscript from an agent contact of mine last night, and though she didn’t totally hate it, her comments made it very clear that it needs WAY MORE work.
Yes, it has taken me a while, but I think I have finally come to the realization that writing a novel (like self portraits with your smart phone) is a lot harder than it looks.
