Writer's sharing knowledge

Wonderful article that was so good, I had to come out of my blogging respite to share, it brought many things into perspective and why there are so many factors that contribute to finding a great agent, getting published, and success selling books etc.

That IS a great article!! More writers should read that. It's not personal--it's a business decision. And agents are people too. Hope you are enjoying your summer! (what's left of it)

Thanks Carol, for responding to the link, although it was a great article it also made me take on another perspective, I don't necessarily believe an aspiring author will progress based on who he/she knows, it may help get them a step further but the writing will still have to stand on its own and again its subjective whether the agent will fall in love with the novel.

It took me a while to realize that the book industry isn't personal. It's just what you like. It's exactly like me going into a book store and picking out my favorite book.

That said, articles like this always make me realize the insanity involved in what writers do. :/

I agree, a writer who might know an agent or someone in the industry might get their book published, but what happens after that? If it isn't good, it'll just sit there.
