I've been working on my first book for a long time now, and I have developed my craft to the point that I'm fairly confident that my next draft will be ready for an agent to consider. I already have the first few chapters solidified in this new draft, and things are looking good. That said, when should I start to consider querying agents? Should I wait until this draft is completed, or should I get the process going now because they will likely take their time responding to me? I guess I want to query now, but I'm afraid they'll quickly ask for my whole manuscript which is still a work in progress. Would it look bad if I said, "I'm still working on it!"
