Wrapping up the Guide to Submissions

I hope the last month of posts on how to submit your writing was helpful to those of you who are just starting out or getting restarted. In college, when I first started sending out my work, it felt like this big, bold, scary thing to do, but as I’ve made it just part of my monthly to-do list, it has lost a lot of the power and scariness. The key points to take away are:

  1. a few submissions every now and then are better than nothing
  2. don’t fret a rejection – send your work somewhere else!
  3. don’t be afraid

Let me know if there are any questions you have on this topic, and I’ll be happy to answer them!

  1. I, also, write poems and songs.
    I “hear” them. The songs are fully arranged in my mind! I quickly write them down.
    Right now, just rest and be very gentle with yourself for as long as you need to. Hugs from a stranger in California who senses your loss.
