Tessa Shaffer
Literary Agent AMA (Ask Me Anything)

Hi All! I've been a little backed up with book-to-TV development and haven't been able to add to the author's lounge as much as I'd like to, so I'm posting a Q&A! I'm a Literary Agent for novelists and a Literary Manager for screenwriters. What questions do you want to know about Literary Agents or...

Books On Writing You Need to Read

In our Stage 32 Zoom call today, the question came up about favorite writers. I mentioned this guy: Chuck Wendig. Let's just say I am addicted to his work. He is raw, insulting, and he does not accept one excuse from you on why you are not writing or trying to become a better writer.

My Kindle has a...

Novels to Screenplays

I'm new to the Writer's Room. Where can I find those who are novelists working to get their books into film? Is there a group? Thank you!

Karen "Kay" Ross

Hey LoLo, this is Karen from the Stage 32 team. I just wanted to let you know I moved your post from Anything Goes to Authoring & Playwriting (since you're looking to connect with novelists), as it fits much better there. Let me know if you have any questions, and all the best to you!

LoLo Paige

Thank you so much!

Carina S. Burns

Hi LoLo! I just sent you a friend request:D Actually, I had your very thought yesterday and wanted to post as well. How COOL!!!

Not satisfied

Have you ever tried, after reaching the end of your book, to wish to throw everything you wrote into the sea and then start over?

Thiago Carvalho

I've been through a situation like this before. When it occurs, I take a few days off. two, tops. So I read everything again to deliver a better result than previously generated, but at the limit of the viable and without destroying the essence of the original.

Debbie Elicksen

Not without backing it up first. :) Just in case I need to retrieve it.

Fatema Elmahdy

Thank you sooo much ..you make me comfortable cause I felt I’m nt alone

LoLo Paige

Always. Made the mistake of listening to my critique group (who don't read or write in my genre) to start over with my 3rd novel in my series. They didn't like the 2nd attempt, nor the 3rd. I became c...
