What would you do differently? Panel -- Everything You Want to Know About Selling Commercial Fiction
I’d do a couple of things differently. First, I’d study the market more. When I first started writing, I was only interested in writing my story, market wasn’t as interesting, and what I’ve learned about the market (and I’ve learned A LOT) I learned gradually by submitting and networking.
I'd write faster and finish more work.
Also, I think I’d get an agent as soon as I could, and I’d REALLY look into the agent’s background before I signed with him/her.
