A marvelous analogy...

I ran across this post today on agent Scott Eagan's blog. It's about three reasons why agents will consider rejecting a manuscript after only a few pages. The one that really got me, though, was number three - where he compares seeing the conflict start too early with hearing a bad rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Honestly. Cracked me up, and insightful too.
