Illumination Sucks

So, looking through my dormant files and notes and thinking about what the next project ought to be, I've figured out why I can't land an agent.

It's because I can't settle into a niche and brand myself.

My close calls with agents have all happened when they loved one project but were not interested in the others - any of the others - even as something to focus on later. And I'm not willing to abandon them. And we're both right on this.

I was going to expand and explain but that was before the ax came out of the air and split my forehead in two, without producing Athena. Stupid bodies, hijacking brains between one moment and the next...I'll do better tomorrow or the next day, I expect.

  1. Peni, I'm right there with you. Not with the agent thing (though I've got an issue there too) but with not being able to stay in one place long enough to create a name.

    Plus I've given away my power an allowed myself to be influenced by other people's criticism of my work.

    Stupid brain.
