There are very few absolutes in the world. What one agent/publisher/publishing house loves, another may dislike. How-to's and info posts are helpful, but don't let them make your decisions. The only REAL absolute? You gotta actually write. And editing is helpful 😁

Three reasons why you should stop what you're doing right now and listen to this awesome story: 1. It's written by , a fantastic, talented author you really don't want to miss. 2. narrated it. Seriously, the guy is amazing. 3. Because I said so. 😉

Don't most submission packages include a synopsis too? And those have to include every plot twist, character death and ending. I just don't like the implication that one mistake can screw you over completely. He's basically telling writers who've made this mistake to self reject

People still read big books though. Brandon Sanderson, Pat Rothfuss, GRR Martin, etc. There's a whole genre defined by the length of the books. Look, I'm not saying it's a good idea to spoil your book. I just don't believe there are any absolutes in creative endeavors.

And yet people still watch Endgame over and over despite knowing the entire plot. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm not an agent so I can't make that claim. I just don't think giving away a few spoilers guarantees you'll never get an agent. I don't think it's that black and white

I'm not sure how this accounts for readers who read books more than once. I've always thought agents are looking for books they want to read over and over. Which would imply that books are more than their plot twists and character deaths. But that's just my opinion.

That's part of the reason I've been careful about the few character questions I give for the . Some backstories have a lot of spoilers and I don't want to anyone to feel pressured to share anything they don't want to.

While this is good advice (one should always be careful of what you share on the internet), every agent is different. If you've already given away a plot twist or a character death, don't just self reject. But perhaps be a little more careful in the future.

Look both ways, all around, up and down, and then throw out a few prayers before charging into the fray. 😂

Shout out to everyone who sucks at multitasking, but are doing their best anyway. Multitasking is freaking hard when it doesn't come naturally, so give yourself a pat on the back and recognize that doing more than one thing at the same time is AMAZING!

This should be a comedy adventure TV show. A bunch of nerdy trouble makers build a time machine and go back in time to murder history's biggest annoying idiots and hilariously screw up timelines everywhere as a result.

All in favor of planning a mass genocide of history's biggest idiots?
