We find that agents, publishers, and presses look for stories that are "dynamic," "plot-driven," and "emotionally impactful." Usually, they want a big twist at the end or some kind of fireworks. Darth Vader is the father and the Death Star blows up. But it's not often that our lives have big twists and awe-inspiring fireworks. Sometimes the moments that impact us the most are the quiet ones. The ones we didn't realize were happening and didn't know had ended. These are the stories we want. Stories that meander through city alleyways and country lanes. We want to see a snapshot of life, even something that blends the line between fiction and reality. This is what we know we love, but we're happy to be surprised. So if you have something outside of this aesthetic that you think we'll like, we want to read that too.
