“Oh, that’s too bad. You were such a good writer! Whatever happened to that book you wrote?” Yeah, that was a first draft. A manuscript, actually. It was never a book. I put it aside a long time ago. Actually, a few years ago now. Just about when I really started buckling down to the work of becoming an agent.
“An agent? So what exactly does that mean? What do you do then?” So I sell manuscripts to publishing houses for authors, because most publishing houses don’t accept unsolicited manuscripts.
Ok, you know Ari Gold on Entourage? I’m like that. Only for writers and books. Well, not really. Cause I’m not such a dick. And I didn’t really watch Entourage much so I’m not actually sure if I’m like Ari. But I know Ari was an agent… “Oh, ok. Too bad. You were such a good writer.”
I’m going to go get another drink. Want anything?! “No, I’m good.”
