Default Managers -- What Is and Is Not An Ideal Relationship

these questions are for writers with reps and those without. if you have the time and inclination to respond i would be grateful.

Writers With Managers:
  • what would you like them to do that they do not do?
  • how often do you communicate with your manager?
  • how do they guide your career?
  • what is a fair turnaround time to read your screenplay (any draft)?
  • how do they communicate their notes on a draft?
  • do they have a strategic plan to develop your career in the first year, 5 years and beyond?
  • what are your biggest disappointments with having a manager?
  • what were you not expecting (good or bad) that impacted your writing?
  • what would you have liked to ask before you signed that you didn't ask?
  • what were your initial expectations of having a manager? which ones were realistic and which were not?
  • what are the best aspects of your manager relationship? what are their greatest strengths and their greatest weaknesses?
  • what would you tell a writer who doesn't have a manager, what they should know and understand before going in?
  • do they send you an active list of open writing assignments? or is this strictly an agent's responsibilities?

Writers Without Managers:
  • what do you hope a manager will do for you?
  • how often do you expect to communicate with your manager?
  • how quickly do you expect them to turn around a draft with notes?
  • do you have a plan for your career path?
  • do you have a strategy on how to execute your plan?
  • what questions would you ask a manager who offered to rep you?
my opinions are just that-- my opinions.
