I bought The Writer Magazine once and fell in love with the articles and advice about writing. Did I subscribe to the magazine? No. I hadn’t taken myself seriously then. Will I subscribe now? Frak yes!
A friend of mine recently sent me a link on an article recently published titled, “50 simple rules for making it as a writer.” I don’t want to be sued by anyone so I’m posting the link here.
For writers confused about the self-publishing and the logistics about becoming published, this article should answer those questions.
I hope this article helps!
When this website came on the scene, I was ecstatic! But guess who hasn’t used it yet? Exactly.
Wordhustler provides writers with the easiest access to agents, writing markets and contests all in one place. Seriously. Why don’t I use this? I have my many reasons but I encourage you all to get up on this!
Remember when my goal was to submit in March (obviously that didn’t happen)? I’ve given myself until the end of the year to submit to a contest or magazine. I have nothing to lose.
There is a small fee to pay when you decide to send multiple submissions but completely worth the price to have your work seen.
I’m enrolled to make it happen; it won’t be now but definitely by the end of the year.
I like the Writer’s Digest website because of the insightful articles, the writing contests, and the prompts. The other night, I stumbled upon this simple gem of a piece titled, There’s No Such Thing as a Failed Story.
After reading the piece, I sighed a breath of relief. I’m on the right track. I’m writing, writing, writing…especially on this blog all the time. And I know that all the pieces I produce will end up leading me to the one piece that will knock my own socks off. I’m not there yet but in practicing and reading, I will get to where I need to be.
All the material I’ve been ingesting about writing has provided the motivation and support I need while applying to schools again for next year. Additionally, all this knowledge makes it easier to pursue this career (you’d think I’d be scared away) but this solidifies my passion for sharing my thoughts with others and creating worlds. I know I have not gone on to write a fictional story since applying (talk about straight up resistance) but I will do it and when I do, ya’ll be the first ones to know.
