To Agent or not to Agent…
that is my question.
whether tis nobler in the mind of the writer to suffer
the slings and arrows of Amazonian inundation,
or to take arms against that sea of troubles
and by professional representation, end them?
To deadline, to outline, to write
and no more; and by write, to say we end
the awkward vagaries of incessant self-promotion
and the thousand natural downers
that effort is prone to. Is it a consummation
devoutly to be wished?
Looking past the next Clar1ty Wars installment to two full scale projects, as well as considering application to this year’s Viable Paradise on Martha’s Vineyard, I’m teetering on the edge of this question yet again. Will it aid me in my pursuit of writing full-time? Or is it genuinely possible to take ‘the road less traveled’ and achieve the same?
Anyone have any experiences transitioning from indie to agented, or the reverse? Or recommend an agent that won’t shy away from my kind of fiction? I’d love to hear.
