I find it difficult to get down to writing when the sun is shining! There always seems to be so many other things I would rather be doing and it seems a shame to be cooped up indoors. While flicking through the July edition of Writing magazine I spotted a useful article on preparing a story for publication. They suggest that, if you write fiction, you need a literary agent. The article goes on to list various methods of finding a suitable agent. One of which is to think of an author you feel is a good match for your work, and find out who their agent is by doing a basic search on the internet. From here you should find out if they accept unsolicited submissions, who to approach, etc. So this is what I have started to do. If I can’t get down to the writing at least I feel I’m doing something constructive!
