Not much in the agent news this week.
I wanted to point out a fun and constructive article on Agents' Chapter 1 Pet Peeves and Writing Cliches originally published in Writer's Digest in 2008. Good info here. Of course, these are agent opinions and not all agents may see these "pet peeves" in a negative light. However, the list gives you a good idea of what to avoid in your chapter one for your best foot forward. In this competitive market, us writers need all the help we can get!
Agents' Chapter 1 Pet Peeves and Writing Cliches Part 1 and Part 2.
Have a great week!
