Literary agent on what he's looking for in a book author - someone with a story so big that it won’t fit in a newspaper article. But more than that, it's a story the author can't let go of...they simply have to write it.

Writers: Let's say you're planning your writing goals for 2019. Do you have multiple "tiers" of a single goal? For example... * X words/day = good * Y words/day = great * Z words/day = ecstatic What goal are you most excited about in 2019?

I've spent the last few weeks writing letters of reference and reviewing students' personal and research statements. I've run out of words to describe how impressive students are, and how much they contribute to our community.
