As I am trying to learn as much as possible about the publishing process and industry, I have been following a number of literary agent blogs. There are some fantastic ones out there. And the funny thing is, I often find that just as I am writing about something from the writer's perspective, one of the agents is writing about the very same issue from his or her point of view. Last week I posted "Writer for hire." It discusses why writers write despite the hassle of trying to get published and the great odds stacked against them. This post from one of the top-rated agency blogs discusses the joy and satisfaction agents glean from the business, and why they do what they do. It's a great read and a comforting message, from my perspective!
