Notes From My Writing Experience. Post #1
I Track What I Submit
I track what I submit in a spreadsheet whose design I borrowed from an old edition of Writers Market. Over time I tweaked the format, customizing it to my specific needs.
The picture you see is an example of how I track my submissions. I usually estimate that most publishers will respond favorably to my submissions within 60 days after submission deadline. If I receive no response within 80 days, I consider it “rejected”. Why? I have never received an acceptance for any submission that has aged past 62 days.
I mark these aged submissions as “no response” and I filter them out of my list.
I am not a writing expert. Nonetheless, I have experience on being published and I want to share my tools and my experience with you.
Look for more posts about what I have experience as a writer in the near future.
