So, I’m working on this short story so that possibly…I could send it out to magazines.
This is an exciting step.
Now is the time in my writing career when I edit, edit, edit, and then get rejected and then edit and then get rejected again, but also hopefully learn a lot more and get to be that much better of a writer!:)
So I’m looking at this little four page piece of work and trying to figure out what is wrong with it and how to get better and whether or not it will EVER get completely done. I’ve heard that a writer needs to write till they feel that can’t fix it any more and then edit it some more and then it will be finally good enough, but I’ve also heard that at some point you just have to send it out. I now this story needs a bit more work before sending it out to brave the world but I’m not sure how much. Do you have any opinion on how edited a story has to be?
Well, most magazines start accepting submissions in August (be ready fellow writers!!:) so I plan on sending it out sometime next month and for now, I’ll edit it a little longer and then start on my next story:) BTW’s, if anyone knows of a magazine that accepts new writers and fantasy short stories, just let me know:) I plan on blogging a list of the one I’m submitting to and would love to hear about any that you know of:)
