I attended a mini-writer’s retreat
this past weekend.
The biggest topic of conversation
was the gap between
what writers wanted from their agents
and
the level of service they were receiving.

NONE of the dissatisfied writers
had contacted their agents
and outlined how
(the medium)
and how often
they prefer to communicate.

NONE of the writers
have set up a regular monthly call
or email or snail mail letter
with their missing-in-action agents.

NONE of the writers
have asked for what they need
to make them happy with the relationship.

Your business partner is
NOT a mind reader.
Your business partner is
as busy as you are.

She is not sitting around
wondering whether or not you’re happy.
She assumes you’re happy
unless you tell her otherwise.

Be an adult.
Stand up and ASK for what you need.
