Finished beats perfect 100 times out of 100. That helped me get over that.
Yeah as I continue to write I can already see how much is going to need to be rewritten. But it doesn't freak me out, it helps me realize that I know I can do better.
Been doing some freelance editing for authors lately, and I finished my first Fiverr order a couple weeks ago. Had no idea they take such a large portion of your earnings, and that it takes 3+ weeks for funds to transfer into your account. Total bullshit.
big reason I had to stop freelancing after about six months a few years back. And I’ve heard the fees went up for all the platforms I used at the time
I hit 50k!
Man, I submitted to 62 lit magazines and journals in the last few months and I got 30 rejections. Its not like im submitting the same piece either. Granted i got accepted back in July by one journal, but all these recent rejections are making me lose faith. Massive bummer.
Not even kidding, I got a poem accepted today--less than 24 hours after that whiny ass post. You can't make this shit up lmao.
For people who do things like nano, is writing your full time job? Trying to figure out how bad I should feel about myself for not feeling like Im able to write that much.
I work in marketing at a law firm. On a day where words are flowing, the 1667 words/day pace of NaNo is less than 45 minutes of writing.
Never feel bad about the pace you write. But making it a daily habit will eventually lead to more speed. Speed doesn’t denote quality.
Guys!! It feels so damn good to hold this bad boy in print. Since moving to Philadelphia and organizing bi-weekly creative writing workshops, I got more involved as an editor with a small lovely group of writers and artists. After months of work, we created an actual (beautiful) literary journal. It features poetry, short fiction, artwork, and photography; and an excerpt of my novel is featured in it(!!!). Please support by purchasing a copy here... would mean the world.
Hi writer friends! I recently submitted a flash-fiction piece to this publisher. I need 50 or more votes for them to strongly consider it to be featured in their next anthology. It takes about twenty seconds to vote, so please help me by voting on this page. Happy to repay the favor however I can!
‘The White Wolf Dreams’ By Jonathan Koven

I recently finished my query letter and sent out ten emails tonight for my debut novel. Holding off on including any sample pages to see if the query itself is working to draw interest. Let's goooooo.
Hi guys, so I figured I should promote the journal I've been a part of.
We are currently open for submissions for our Spring issue and the theme is "duality." 500 words or less. We accept fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and photography. FYI I'm one of the fiction editors

Bumping this post because we need all the submissions we can get! So please, even if you've never submitted your work before, send us your best stuff! Tons of the submissions we published in our last issue were from first-timers. Even if your piece isn't accepted for the print version, we have an online version that publishes our runner-up submissions, so your chances of being accepted are HELLA high!
I'll do some digging through my poetry and see if I have anything to submit. 500 words for fiction too short :/ may see if I have anything in the vault that fits.
I don’t have anything that fits thematically.
The word count is definitely tight, for sure. Makes for a good flash-fiction prompt though.
