I'm taking an online workshop given by my Hearts Through History chapter called "Persistance."
It's not easy to live the life of a freelance writer and now I'm learning I haven't been getting my projects out there enough. I should have at least 15 to 25 submissions out on a regular basis, including requests, queries, partials, contest entries or scheduled pitches to editors.
Seems I've really dropped the ball on this one.
Right now I've got one requested short story being looked at, one contest entry out and another I'm preparing to send, but that's it. Just three submissions.
I am planning to send at least two partials of my historical romance out next month and am looking into a couple of contests for January.
But, I think I have to work on getting my projects out there more.
