A while ago I wrote about how one submits their articles, etc. One way is to submit everything you’ve got. One non-writer said to me “go crazy”. The other way is to submit your best.
I had been methodically submitting to a particular publisher, but a rejection I got from them over the weekend made me focus on my approach with them. Reconsidering my approach is what I should do in this case.
The answer was obvious. I came down on the side of only submitting my best after this rejection. The pieces I’ve put aside may be good for a different publisher.
So, my bottom line for this publisher is to submit my best, while the others may find the light of day somewhere else as they may fit better there.
Nothing is wasted, therefore.
I was going to chuck the others out, but thought better of it.
