  • Tips on Writing Characters with Agency – One thing you hear about a lot when you start sending your manuscript out into the world is ‘agency’. Most agents (and publishers) are looking for characters who make things happen, not ones who merely react to the situation they’re stuck with.

It’s okay to start off with a character with minimal agency, but most readers want to see the characters come into their own.
