Miss Snark's Greatest Hits (vol 7)

Here's a post on what an agent would like to see in her authors and what they should expect of her. It's more complex than that, but that's the gist. Definitely worth a read.

On the utility of selling portions of a novel to magazines.

Pluses and minuses of an individual agent (as opposed to one who's part of a larger agency). Or, what happens if your agent spontaneously combusts. I hadn't thought about this as much as I should have. It's probably not a bad idea to have a contingency plan in case your agent is suddenly removed from play somehow.
