Agents Get Frustrated Too

I want to keep this one short today but to give you all something to think about.

I was on the phone with a great colleague of mine a couple of days ago and we were spent a few minutes just complaining. You know, sometimes, you just have to do this.

In any case, we were whining about projects we loved and couldn't sell, submissions coming in that weren't quite right.... you get the general idea.

The point is, that while you as writers might complain, whine and moan on your end about the business, you have to know that the agents out there are doing the same thing. This is not an easy business to be in. You have to have a tough skin and if you don't get out before you are scarred for life.

Patience is required in this business. It also takes a huge amount of understanding of how it all works and the people on the other end.
