I was a literary agent for a day
And let me tell you. It is hard work. There were 50 queries that needed responses. I answered about 30 or so. I am amazed at how many bad query writer’s there are. If you have finished a book, I would expect you to be a better writer.
There were also some good ones. Diamonds in the rough, that caught my eye right away. Mostly though, it helped me with my own story… what to do, what not to do. So thank you Nathan Bransford and other dude who suggested this exercise. Bravo, my eyes were opened.
