I can't bear a world where everyone is always seen forever as the simple embodiment of their worst tweet or comment, without context or nuance, or understanding of what it means to be human.

I agree with this entire thread, and also can't bear a world where Damon and Taylor Swift are at war. Taylor is magnificent and right to be angry, Damon made a mistake, and I really hope everyone can hug it out now.

I think writers, too, know the difference betw actually inhabiting the actions/states you're writing about (even tho' you're just sitting at your desk), & writing what people seem usually to feel & do at such a moment i.e. pretending (FWIW, I'm an ex-wannabe-actor)

@lucyatkins So belief in your action and intention is almost always possible, even if only theoretically. The rest of the time, you pretend (and as David Mamet suggests, “be what you wish to seem.”)

Plus ça change… "literary agents look to themes for 2022, suggesting that vampires and cosy crime might be big" says @thebookseller . This was a forum conversation c.2010, quoted in This is Not a Book About Charles #Darwin : #AmWriting #fiction

Jo is a fantastic agent who is also fantastic at explaining how agenting works and how writers work with an agent. I co-chaired her great Salon @WordsAwayUk , which was full of wit and wisdom.

Lovely writers, want to ask @jounwin (“Unwin know her onions”) questions about getting an agent, what agents actually do, what you need to do? Then sign up on this page. Also here, a Masterclass with Paula Hawkins, a *free 4 session event* + more
