Congratulations on your publishing credits! It's not easy to get going on that submission business... it feels so submissive. B.
Bonnie! Thanks! It is a hard process, I especially have to remind myself not to get anxious about it. Mostly I try to turn the whole thing into a routine. Hopefully I'll start getting some more stories out there to counter the weight of the poetry.
Yup, I'm with you, Ryan. I think of sending out work as a job in the same way as flossing the teeth. Pain in the ass, gotta do it. Are you using the free website Duotrope?(www.duotrope.com)
I do use Duotrope, but only for my stories... it was too daunting to enter all my poetry... or I was too lazy. Maybe a combination of both. I'm looking forward to American Salvage arriving, by the way!
