One Writer’s Journey

Business relationships

Filed under: Uncategorized — suebe @ 4:38 am

Whether you write here and there when you have time or your writing is serious business, keep your business relationships just that — business.

It feels odd to have to point that out, but apparently some writers just don’t get it.  They send editors and agents the kinds of e-mail that many of us consider spam.  You know what I mean — precious baby animal photos, pleas (often bogus) to help ill or missing children . . .

Need I go on?

I should hope not and I wouldn’t have even written this much on the topic, but apparently agent Janet Reid felt it was necessary.  Somehow, I don’t think she came to this conclusion lightly.

No one is saying that you can’t be chatty with your editor, within reason, but there are limits.
