My crit group thinks I should be an agent. This is not surprising as my skill set is heavy on organizing people and schmoozing. Being bluntly honest and having a bunch of knowledge about the children’s book industry is right up there too. If only I could apply my wonderful critiquing skills, agent and editor research, and conference schmoozing to actually write and sell my manuscripts. Then there is living in New York. Hmmm… maybe when the kids grow up I’ll reinvent myself as a chic New York literary agent. Of course, I’d have to wear heels, start at the bottom again earning $20,000 a year, and deal with papercuts from opening the mail.
