Lately, I have to say, and I don’t mean to brag, my clients are killing it. Almost everyone is writing at the top of his game. Sentences are unfurling. Ideas realized. Great titles pulled, like rabbits, from hats. Killer blurbs delivered. Films optioned. Most of all: great writing. Right now I love opening attachments from my writers and you know who you are. It’s an amazing feeling after 27 years to feel so happy and proud of the scoundrels and thieves also known as your clients. When they are healthy and writing and being productive, that’s the happiest feeling for me. And it’s hard won, pushing those boulders up those mountains. Take a Client to Work Day. I Heart Clients. I Break for Clients. It’s not to say that these relationships don’t wear you down, are sometimes fraught and intense and difficult, but there is also this: trust. A client putting his faith in an agent, an agent putting his faith in a writer.
You know I love bad agent stories, but tonight indulge me: any good stories?
