What Agents Hate

There's a wonderful article up at Writer's Digest outlining specific turn-offs agents have regarding the oh-so-important first chapter. This is a MUST READ, so scurry on over and take a look!

I'm glad to read that prologues are becoming less popular as I struggled for a while with whether or not to have one in my own memoir. I decided against it, after listening to Jean Jenkins at the SCWC (Southern California Writers' Conference) I attended last weekend in Irvine, California. I also heard something else of interest: The synopsis might be a thing of the past. Now wouldn't that be wonderful?
Thanks for the article.
