Visit to International Scripts
When I visited London two months ago, I spend two hours with my literary agent, International Scripts.
I have been dealing with them for four years but always through brief emails only.
I was made to feel most welcome.
If I ever feel bogged down as a writer with a manuscript to read, I should think of the agent’s desk stacked one meter high with prospective novels.
Although the next Harry Potter could be amongst them, the pile probably represented a lot of writing, much of which will go unrewarded.
As I said before – writers deserve full marks for perseverance - but they also must be little mad!!
