Agent For A Day

April 14, 2009

I’ve been remiss on reading some of the blogs I like (Calculus test on Friday) but what a good idea Mr. Nathan Bransford had. 

To give writers an idea what is involved in being a literary agent (at least the gruntwork) he decided to post 50 queries to his blog, http://nathanbransford.blogspot.com/2009/04/be-agent-for-day-here-we-go.html, throughout the day yesterday.

I have yet to try my hand at evaluating these but it seems like a great way to show why form rejections are the norm and just how fast you have to make a decision on a query before moving on to the next.

I urge anyone reading this post to try this little exercise (don’t forget that you should do them all in a day) and see if you can request the right three.  Apparently three of them are queries for novels that got published.

Go ahead, see if you have what it takes to be an uberagent. 🙂
