Excellent interview w/ legendary literary agent Molly Friedrich

Poets & Writers Magazine has a very lengthy interview with legendary literary agent Molly Friedrich. It's a five-page interview but well worth reading in its entirely, really thoughtful and filled with great advice. (While you're there, go through and take the time to read all of the agent and editor interviews in the right-hand sidebar.)

Agreed. I loved her from the beginning, but by the last page when she gets to the bit about "no whining", I was completely in her pocket. Thanks for the link!

I loved the "no whining" part too! I wish more people weren't afraid to be blunt.

Molly is a force to be reckoned with. I like her style. She knows what she wants and she goes after it. I especially like the "no whining" part. Too many people today spend way too much time "whining" about whatever and making excuses for anything and everything. Get over it people! Use that energy and go out and make a difference instead.

Loved this. Just did a huge post on it on my blog (heh, probably going against what she said at the end about technology distracting writers). Brilliant.
