Here at MonstaPro, we like to think we know a thing or two about writing; particularly what it takes to get some words down in the right order.
This is why we feel that, when other like-minded souls scribble a few things in order to help that situation, we’d like to spread the word in order to help the general populace. We’re nice like that.
Subsequently, found this (following) little gem, thought we’d share. Here’s a snippet:
It takes more than time to write a book. It also takes courage, stamina and self-belief, all of which may leach away in the face of (constant) rejection. And, let’s be clear, rejection is the norm. The spurn rate is much higher with journal articles (many journals rejecting as many as 95% of the articles submitted) but the norm is rejection for a book manuscript, too. Luckily, there is (or should be) more than one press or journal to offer your work to.
Have a look at Getting Published, they know what they’re talking about.
