Every once in a while, a writer sends me a query addressed to another agent at another company and it makes me think that she or he couldn’t be that serious about getting representation if s/he is so careless with his or her submission.
Then there are those who query every agent in our agency at the same time, a definite no- no.
And I am always suspicious of the writer who refers to his or her work as a fiction novel.
In response to Miriam Goderich’s very clever blog entry last week regarding having fun while we do our jobs, Mary Witzl suggested that we ask writers what their worst query mistakes have been. That sounded like a great idea to me and so I am throwing the question out to our blog readers.
Bring those submission errors on! I am eager to hear about them.
