Very useful information into the inner workings of agents and their assistants.  Would be interested in techniques to energized the assistant to read script and to place it on the top of the agents must read

Wow, this was great. I recently read two books, one on Market Segmentation and the other on Product Positioning. What Mr. Block says makes sense when you think about your script in the terms I just mentioned. OMG!

Lots of good business stuff in this interview...
Picket Fencing Agents
Guard at the Gate - Their role and objective of looking for the gem
50 submission
Obsessed Protagonist - must achieve what they want - desire - highly charged motivation to take off into the pursuit of their desire

Thanks Bill,

Block's clarity and his honest respect for an agent's assistant is just the kind of insider wisdom I need to remember when the depressing agent blues of writers is playing in my head.

This feels like very grounded, honest marketing advice. Easier said then done, yet it's extremely emboldening to see Bill's read on the etiquette, politics and mechanics of approaching agents and their assistants. There is a potential gold mine in this subject.

Fantastic! I actually don't feel so bad about being obsessed myself now, although I doubt that was the intention...
