Why Pursue Publishing?
Sometimes when I open up my email and find the queries exploding all over the place, or I go to a party and random strangers find out I’m an agent and begin pitching me, it makes me get all philosophical.
I begin to wonder: Why do so many people want to be published?
I think about how storytelling has been part of human interaction since the beginning of time. And I think about how everyone just needs to be heard. And I think about our celebrity-driven culture and I assume some people want to be published because they want to be famous.
But those are just my thoughts. What are yours?
