Two well known, well respected agents. Two personal rejections after reading the first 50 pages of "Wings." Conflicting comments.
Agent number one: Story is too slowly paced, too much time spent on character development at the expense of the story.
Agent number two: Story is too fast paced, not enough time to feel connected with the characters.
I swear--these agents read the SAME 50 pages.
The silver lining--both agents mentioned that they liked my writing.
Sigh. Just another frustrating day in the writing life.
