I promise not to turn these diary entries into nothing more than a series of updates about rejection letters from agents, but I feel the contents of the letter I received yesterday are worth sharing.

The missive started with the usual words about how the agency is inundated with work and that I mustn't lose heart etc etc, but the closing line provided an interesting statistic. Apparently this particular agency receives 300 submissions A WEEK. Now, all weeks being equal, that means they get something in the region of 15,000 separate submissions every year. Would you care to know how many writers actually get added to their books out of those 15,000?

Two or three!

So, what d'you reckon? Is an agent going to take on my script or am I going to get struck by lightning?
