Submission guidelines.

March 26, 2007

I need to have at least twenty submissions out at any given time in order to feel that I am producing, I’ve realized.  This does not mean 20 stories, this may mean 5 stories submitted to 4 places, etc.

Because when the rejections (and the acceptances, Thank God) come in, I need to feel that there is still something to wait for…to hope for.

My own personal submission guideline, you see.

    MJB,

    I hope to have enough works in progress to do this sort of literary juggling myself. I think I might make it this summer. You again give me hope.

    You should write a how-to book about how to remove the quotes from the phrase I’m a “writer.”

  2. Wow Caveblogem, that’s one of the nicest posts ever! Thank you so much for the compliment. -mjb
