No More Excuses

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.
