Another View of Rewriting

A quote from Author Peter Murphy:

"Rewriting is like scrubbing the basement floor with a toothbrush."

One of my writer friends who doesn't like to rewrite said that quote resonated because his basement has a dirt floor.

Here's a quote from Arthur Polotnik:

"You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke."

Agent April Eberhardt

April is enthusiastic when she hears about writers' projects.I had pitched my novel to her at the S.F. Writers Conference a couple of times. This year I attended one of her talks and found out that she has started her own agency.



She "specializes in high quality women's fiction: thoughtful, carefully crafted narratives by, for and about women." She understands both traditional and electronic marketplaces.

Check out her website and see if she might be a match for your work.
