I'm trying, I really am! But I keep finding myself re-reading and doing some small editing on my novel manuscript. I said I was going to leave it alone for a little bit, to gain some new perspective before I go and do the major editing/revisions. I found this great website called Agent Query with an awesome searchable database of literary agents. I found about seven I want to look into further. I know my manuscript is in no condition to go out just yet, so before I start querying I think I'm going to look into a few of the books each agent has sold to get a feel for the kind of writer they represent. Then I'll have a better idea of where I want to send queries when the novel's ready!

I do actually have some ideas that are finally taking shape in my head. I think I might be ready to start writing something else, or at least mapping a few things out, so that should keep me busy (and away from my novel draft for now!) for a little bit.

So anyway, all you writers out there need to visit Agent Query's website. And while you're there, join AQ Connect!

  1. I hear you on trying to keep your fingers away from that keyboard. I keep tinkering, tinkering, tinkering. You'd think I'd be done by now...but there is always something that can be improved, made clearer, rearranged, etc. Good thing it is so much fun!


Got something to say?
