Exercise #380: Craft
Today’s exercise idea comes from Mellissa.
How do you track your queries?
Especially for those authors who have a lot of short pieces to sell, trying to manage who has what for how long can get rather confusing. Add in how some publishers don’t want a piece that’s being simultaneously submitted elsewhere, and you can have quite a tangle.
How do you decide where to send a particular piece of work? How do you keep track of how long publishers have had a submission? How do you know when to move on? If a publisher accepts a piece under limited rights, do you track when those rights expire? Tell us all about queries!
Critiquers, along with the usual grammar, spelling, etc, critique, did this information help you? Why or why not?
