    It’s about time an agent wrote a screenwriting book. In her book Mind Your Business, veteran lit agent Michele Wallerstein gives you a perspective another writer won’t. What is an agent looking for in a script? How do you score in a meeting? How do you handle your side of a negotiation? How can you tell when your agent isn’t into you any more? Many good writers put all their efforts into their scripts. But a brilliant writer can screw up his own career by what he does or doesn’t do. Minding your business — and agenting your agent — is almost as important as your screenwriting craft. When I was starting out, Ms. Wallerstein was one of the agents people recommended I contact. She really knows her stuff. Check it out.
