    Add some 90 proof to it and turn it into the real McCoy.
    Establish your own, distinctive voice, and don’t sell yourself short.
    Maybe future generations of readers will use your work for reference and not…. Who was it that you mentioned?
    Worrying about agents?
    Don’t!
    They are those ‘freaks of nature’ who dream about discovering Hemingway, Irving, Faulkner and Michener…. Now, if any of those authors will send their work to today’s agents, they’ll get a 99% (I could be low) rejection.

    I have no trouble admitting I'm borrowing the structure of my novel from John Irving's novels like "The World According to Garp" and "The Cider House Rules," which he in turn borrowed from Charles Dickens and so on down the line.
