ever have someone tell you to stand up straight? look you in the eye when they're talking?

do i need to be a secret agent to get an agent?

while the question, “how do i get an agent?” has beleaguered writers since Adam, we never really tire of asking it, do we? perhaps if we ask it enough, we’ll find the right answer. this discussion at Three Guys One Book, many provide such a nugget for one of you out there. i’d only add one more piece of advice to theirs: get out and read in public. find lit salons or reading series and step up to the mic. it’ll help your writing too.
