My big thing for not submitting more is I don’t have time. This is true. Time is my most limited resource. However, it’s an excuse. So this week I went out to some of the publications I know I want to submit to. I didn’t take time to research new ones because that eats up that precious commodity of time. I got a list of what they are looking for and I started looking at my done pieces.
I found several that I’ve already written which I can submit to these publications. I’ve been a bum this week. I’m fighting a sinus infection/cold and mostly just want to sleep. However, editing doesn’t take that much effort.
I printed off several of my articles I think will work nicely for these publications. I’ve gotten one edited. In fact I was quite pleased because while I was trying to breath, I got an idea for a completely different opening which I like MUCH better. In about 30 minutes, I made the edits. It took me another 20 minutes on the computer but when I was done, I had the edits entered and the piece submitted.
Will it get published? No idea. I’ve got my fingers crossed and I hope so. Next I’m going to go back to my pile of articles and work on the next piece. I don’t know if it will take as little time but if I can get several submitted maybe I’ll get lucky and get another published item or two.
