You have to love an agent who tells her authors to get a museum membership when they are trying to write a novel. And here I thought I was just having trouble concentrating all these years. It was fallow time: daydreaming, giving the thoughts, images, and creative ideas time to form.

The Janet Reid, Literary Agent  blog is always enlightening and entertaining.
