Okay, okay, okay, I promise I’ll stop writing about this soon because eventually I’ll realise how pointless my additions to what Mammon Machine has to say actually are, but I know a few of you read this blog who yourself
want to be writers are writers.
You should go read that and consider submitting to it. I know, the natural response to reading that is My writing’s not worth it, and I know I almost certainly am not going to submit my writing to her. My reasons are a little more than just fear, though – I’ve already written for editors in the past and I know the experience, and it feels to me like it would be taking twenty dollars and an opportunity for experience from someone else who needs and deserves it more.
That said, do the exercise.
