I’ve had friends staying with me in Rome for the past few days, and I swear 90% of our conversations were about food and where to eat…

I just finished re-reading the novel I wrote (about a runaway king living in Venice and being haunted by memories of the country he left behind) and I genuinely feel quite proud of it. Unfortunately literary agents have no interest and I feel like it’s a hard time to get literary fiction published if you’re a twenty three year old nobody.

I think I’ve also written something that probably seems quite old-fashioned - not surprising considering that 90% of the books I read are pre-1950. Starting to abandon all hopes of ever getting it published…

Followers - have any of you ever tried (or even succeeded) to get a novel published? Or are any of you secretly literary agents? That’d be nice.
