So, I was in the book store this afternoon. I’m a writers reference book junkie, so I bought a copy of Victoria Lynn Schmidt’s Story Structure Architect. It looks like a combination of Tobias’ 20 Master Plots and Vogler’s The Writer’s Journey. In other words, it looks fabulous!
While I was in the store, I glanced at the 2006 Writer’s Market Guide to Agents. I looked up the folks at the Andrea Brown Agency. The agent who requested the partial of I Am Anna Winkler wasn’t listed, but there was quite a long write-up on Laura Rennert, the one who passed me on to this other agent. I noted Laura mentioned liking the TV series Farscape, which I have not actually seen…but it’s Teen’s all-time FAVORITE show. He thinks I’d like it, too…but right now he and I are working our way through season one of Veronica Mars. Still, maybe in a few years HE might want to query Laura Rennert! He’s going to be a published writer one day (What am I saying? He already IS a published writer. He wrote an article for The Goldfinch, Iowa’s history magazine for kids (which is, sadly, no longer being published) a few years ago.
