Nathan Bransford, a literary agent for Curtis Brown, has an excellent advice blog for writers that gets updated just about every weekday. Today he mentioned that he gets about five calls a day from people wanting to know how to get an agent. This makes me painfully embarrassed on behalf of the callers, and pitying of the callees.

To put it in context: calling an agent to find out how to get an agent is similar to calling an attractive man/woman up out of the blue and asking them how to get a date (with them or someone similarly attractive). If you have any inclination to do it, please don't.

You probably don't, though. I have a good feeling about you.

If you'd like to know how to get an agent, he explains it all right here, with convenient links in the right margin explaining more of the details (like how to write a good query).
