I wish there was a way I could peek over the shoulders of other writers about to query agents to see the state of their manuscripts. I know, I know, comparisons aren’t useful to anyone. But I keep reading over and over that what you send to an agent should be your best work, and at this point I feel like if I don’t just take the leap and do it, I’ll never be completely satisfied with my novel. It will never be as polished and perfect as I want it to be. It doesn’t help that I’m pretty sure only one of the four people I’ve given my manuscript to for them to beta read is actually reading it. Bah. I think after I do one last run through of the manuscript, it will be time to start approaching agents. Wish me luck!
On making comparisons when you shouldn’t.
