Consistent rejections

Good blog! Thanks, M.

 

TAS: I'd like to add one more thing: after a decent interval, resubmit. I hear plenty of stories about the same editor (or house) accepting a manuscript after the third submission, even when nothing has changed. Sometimes it's just timing (the story you read in bed after a good meal reads differently on a crowded subway on your way home after a hectic day at work).

 

Keep on keeping on.

When I was 17, a few years ago!, I got the best advice on the subject by none other than the great Gabriel García Márquez, who told us: "A writer's job is to write. Publishing and all the other stuff are not important and does NOT depend on the writer. So, just, go ahead and write".

Hear, hear.
