I’ve recently subscribed to Mslexia, a lovely magazine for and about women writers. Such a wonderful read and so inspiring. But it’s got me thinking and here’s where I hope the friendly writing blogger community can help me.
Which is best? To write something specifically for submission or to write loads of things and pick the one that fits? I’m thinking of the competitions and invitations for submission in the back of writing magazines. I’m feeling confident enough to want to submit something but I’m not sure which approach is the best.
It feels that writing something that really fits the criteria for the competition is the way to go but then what if I have something on the old hard drive that may fit the bill: do I give it a polish up and submit it?
So I’m now wondering whether going through the various magazines and plotting my attack is the way to go. I feel like I’m answering my own question here but do feel free to contradict me!
