Check out this great post from the Novelty Revisions blog on what you will always regret and how to make sure you never have to.
I have a “writer friend” who has a pretty amazing goal this year: To get at least 100 submission rejections.
That seems like a lot. But what it means is that she’s forced to submit to at least 100 different magazines or editors or contests. Probably more.
There’s one thing she isn’t going to regret — and that’s every time she took a deep breath and hit submit, just in case someone on the other end happened to say, “Yes.”
If you’ve found this blog for the first time, read this post, click away, and never return, at least remember this: You will regret every chance you do not take.
It doesn’t matter how afraid you are, how much confidence you lack, how worried you are about someone not approving of your work.
There is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t at least try.
What do you really have to lose?
