And then. The other night. As my husband and I were walking through Barnes and Noble, I had an epiphany.
Every week, many agents look over hundreds of emails, and they hope to see something they love - to connect with something that's been written.
While I walked through the aisles of lovely, beautiful books, I realized that's exactly what I do. I'm looking through the shelves for something that I don't just like, but love.
The difference is that if I pick wrong, I'm out like 10 bucks.
If an agent picks wrong, it's a lot of hours of their professional life and credibility on the line.
Just something to think about.
Also, I'M IN UTAH AND IT'S GORGEOUS AND SUNNY AND I'M SO LOVING THIS!! And for all of my ANWA sisters in SLC for the writer's conference - I'll be seein' ya tomorrow :D
