Emily @CarrKicksDoor@ZREllor @medievalismish I have a complete manuscript, but I think it could use more work. Do I send it to an agent yet or not?
Yes! Don’t send it out until you’ve polished it with critique partners and it’s the best it can be
Kate is in the revision cave @katehavas@ZREllor I think content notes/warnings are (thankfully) becoming more common in publishing and in CP/beta circles, is it helpful for agents to have them in a query or when sending a full?
I think you should certainly include them on the cover page of your full MS, or at the start of your sample pages, if they contain triggering material
Jeronimo Torres @JeronimoTorres1@ZREllor I only started seriously considering a writing career a year ago. Spend way too much time learning about writing instead of actually writing. I believe I may require external motivation, perhaps contests, groups, crit. partners, etc. How to find them?
Look for writing groups in your community and online; seek out people at the same stage in your career you and engage with humility and willingness to learn. Every writing network is different, and it takes a while to find your stride—best of luck!
