First Chapter Troubles

Posted by Rita Lorraine

Hi Everybody,
Wondering why you can’t get an agent? There could be many reasons, but the first chapter is usually the culprit.

Here’s an article called, AGENTS AND FIRST CHAPTERS, that I alerted aspiring writers to in December of 2009. It links to author Livia Blackburne’s article, called 7 REASONS LITERARY AGENTS STOP READING YOUR FIRST CHAPTER. It was (and still is) extremely helpful to me, so I’m re-posting it for those who might have missed it.

Best wishes and happy writing,

Rita Lorraine
