Submission Logic

It’s not the submission that I take issue with its the process of elimination that causes a creative mind stress. Some of the guidelines are ridiculous and in today’s time who needs stacks of paper on their desk. It just makes sense to me email submission…. Why Not!  but that comes with its own monster of process. In technical terms your DPI has to be 300,  your megabytes can only be 40,  your word count can only be 1000, your OMG! has to be in caps. It’s a wonder that writers can write anything, because they spend all their time reading submission process. Good luck out there writers we’re going to need it.

Sincerely,

More coffee please!

If you ask anyone who knows me well, they’ll tell you I have mentioned at least once or twice (read: at least ten times) that I’ve considered quitting writing. As in, taking down the blog, the Facebook page, the twitter account, stopping in the middle of series and just walking away.

Why would an author even think this, you might wonder. Most of you are encouragers who tell authors you enjoy them and try to build them up. So what things would bruise a writer’s spirit so much they would consider quitting?

I’m sharing a couple lists below of five things that bruise…
