Just stopping by to share a wonderful article I found by writer Livia Blackburne, who recently attended the Writer Idol Event at the Boston Book Fest.
Ms. Blackburne outlines the seven major reasons Literary Agents STOP READING first chapters, and the most surprising thing about this article is that none of the reasons are very surprising.
Do yourself a favor and read this article. It will help you re-think your writing, and perhaps even get it back on track.
Best wishes and happy reading!
