Yeah, I would say that one particular callous blamey ableist rant somebody directed at me without caring what was actually going on hurt more than I could let on at the time. That was at least 10 years ago, and I nearly just berserk blocked somebody else over saying something which reminded me of that 😩
I'm beginning my journey into the agent hunting/querying universe. Any suggests for avoiding the dread, anxiety, and nausea that accompanies it?
Hmm I’m not the best resource for querying info, since my pub journey was quite different. But the best advice I’ve heard is to compile a list of your favorite books/authors that are close to who you are as a writer/what you’re working on, and then figure out who their agents are. From there, agents are pretty open about what they’re looking for or if they’re even open to queries. So you can narrow down your choices for your first wave of queries. :)
