The thing I’m the worst at as a writer is maintaining a productive write-now-submit schedule. I write and write and never think to send out pieces that have received rejection notices.
I’m trying out a spreadsheet for tracking everything, including when and where I submitted it and if it received a rejection, etc. That way, I don’t accidentally re-submit a story to a lit mag (been there) or forget where I actually submitted to (been there).
Hopefully, it will help. It’s less fun than writing, but it’s probably the only way I can stay productive with getting my work out there.
What sort of techniques or tools do you use to keep your work circulating?
