Lit agent: Can’t write? Write graphic novels!
Well, not exactly, but newcomer Brianne Ogden told Mediabistro that graphic novels might be just the thing for someone who is more storyteller than stylist:
There are writers with storytelling talent strong enough to bend light waves, but they may not be wordsmiths. A graphic novel might be just the thing for them. Storytelling is the lynchpin of a graphic novel; there is just simply not enough text to require facile wordplay.
If that piques your interest, Ogden wants to see books about angels and demons, fairies and monsters—no vampires, please. “Dark and twisted tales, philosophical principles, sci-fi, mash-ups of any kind, steampunk, mermaids, and kooks. Not all in one book—but I suppose that would be one heck of a story,” she said.
