The hardest part about being a writer is telling others why they’d want to read our stuff. Unfortunately, unless we can do this comfortably and convincingly, it’s going to be harder to find the agent, editor or reader who really wants to love our work. This is something important we must remind ourselves. That agents, editors and readers LOVE finding new authors that they enjoy. The only thing standing in their way is the sheer volume of work out there. They don’t have the time to rifle through all the possibilities, so it’s up to us to make ourselves known in as many different ways as possible.
