I've thought about trying to get an agent since I'm not good about self-promotion... I feel very uncomfortable with it. Does anyone here have any experience with getting one, working with one, and was it worth it in your estimation? Or are you just better off going it alone?
So far I haven't had a whole lot of success on my own, because I always feel my work isn't good enough. I keep telling myself that after I get the next batch of paintings done I'll start contacting people, but I never really end up doing it. I've made some half-hearted attempts before and got some decent feedback, yet nothing much has really come of it. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you still struggle with it and if not how did you beat it?
