My lovely agent recently became a NY Times bestselling author, which is super cool and something I’m pretty sure all writers aspire to. The down side of that (for me) was that her very busy schedule meant she had to make the difficult decision to leave agenting.
So, after taking a good hard look at my manuscript and spending some time making changes, I jumped into querying again. At first, I was terrified and found it even harder than querying before I had an agent. There’s a sense of pressure, rather than a sense of excitement and hope. Luckily, I had some really nice writers who gave me some much needed moral support and encouragement to persevere.
I’m glad I did. I have a new beginning that I’ll announce soon.
