“Here’s the thing: The book that will most change your life is the book you write” -Seth Godin

Or, a book that goes unwritten never gets published. If you’re a first-time author (or, as I prefer to call it, an unpublished author), there’s no way you’re going to get yourself an agent if your novel isn’t finished yet (it works a little differently for published novelists, but I digress). And if you’re trying to get an agent by shopping around an unfinished or unpolished manuscript: don’t. Stop what you’re doing, do not pass go, do not collect $200, and finish your book.

You MUST finish your book before it can BE a book. And once it is, that’s when your life changes. You have to follow the right steps the right way. Like everyone says, you have to walk before you can run. Same with this.

Not sure what you’re doing or how to go about it? Drop a line and ask. If I don’t know (which, I mean, I don’t know everything, so I probably don’t), I’ll point you in the general direction of where to go to find the answers you need.

Just write. Just finish. And take your time. The only deadlines are the ones you place upon yourself, and–like I said, this applies to unpublished authors–don’t freak out if you don’t make it. Life happens. Do what you need to do, and eventually you’ll find you’ve reached the day, whatever day that may be, where your novel is both finished AND ready for the world.
