It's Polite To Point

Rachelle Gardner has a great post on how craft, story and voice go together to make a literary agent say YES.
If editors and agents are looking at your samples and immediately criticizing your craft, be aware this means they aren't able to see a fabulous story in there and they’re probably not compelled by your voice.
In other words, if they're picking at your SPAG errors, you have bigger problems than that.

Who knew?

Whirlochre: I think they keep that fact a closely guarded secret. Try to keep it under your hat.
