Insecure Writer's Support Group - June
The idea of the Insecure Writers Support Group is for writers to blog on the first Wednesday of the month about their fears, struggles and triumphs they have experienced with their writing.
Before I started submitting Book 1, I made a list of suitable agency that represented my genre and had similar types of books in their list. I've been submitting to the agencies in my list one or two at a time (mainly because I'm too much of a wimp to receive millions of rejections all at once).
Now I only have a few more agents to submit to and have reached over 50% of the second draft of Book 2. Do I widen the net of agencies for Book 1, which I would do if Book 2 wasn't anywhere near being finished? Or, once I've submitted to all the agencies on the list, do I concentrate on submitting Book 2?
I'm not sure how my poor little brain would cope with juggling submitting Books 1 & 2 and writing Book 3. But then am I ready to 'give up' on Book 1 (for now at least)?
I'm really not sure. It's something to think about over the next few weeks while I finish Book 2, I suppose. But any advice would be greatly appreciated :-D
