Agent Kristin Nelson has been in New York this last week, and meeting with editors. Her posts have been interesting, educational, and witty, as usual.
There is one thing many writers tend to do: get hung up on market trends. Read her post and mark her words:
Pub Rants: The Year Delay
I think what you should take away from all these posts of mine lately is that it’s good to know the market but ultimately don’t get overwhelmingly caught up into it.
Remember to tell your story well. That's the first and last thing that matters. The rest, in the long run, is the publishing lottery.
Hurry up slowly is the game.
