Break ups are messy, whether you're dealing with marriage break ups or business relationships. Such is the case with an agent-writer relationship. Somehow something went awry, the writer and agent were not on the same page, the writer had unrealistic expectations or perhaps the agent simply wanted to grab the writer before anyone else did and then sat on the writer to squash the competition from their existing client (rare, but it does happen).Having done it more than once (with regrets to this day), I say why not just emulate my parents, who stayed together for 58 years despite the misery? It's much more economically advantageous.
