Under the Microscope: Innocence

This service is absolutely, positively amazing! What a fantastic opportunity and blog! When recently at a writer’s conference this is precisely the advice a panel of agents gave when reading out loud first pages of manuscripts and when they would quit reading. In this audience, of approximately 100 people, only 1 person made it through the 1st page of their work. The panel would raise their hands to show us where they would throw the page out and quit reading the submission. The majority of work being discarded during the first to third sentences; a few made it beyond the 1st paragraph. The lucky ones made it beyond the third paragraph. They instilled the importance of 1st sentence, 1st paragraph, 1st page! Thank you for offering this brilliant advice to so many of us hopefuls! Incredible blog!
