When Your Writing Is Rejected By An Editor


By: Sterling Terrell

When your writing is rejected by an editor:

You must never - ever - ever - take it personal.

Haha.

Good luck with that.

Seriously though.

There is a difference in an editor saying "Add this maybe." and "Cut that please." or what have you, and an editor categorically saying "No."

The former you can work with.

The latter means there is no working relationship.

If you are getting the first, great! That is much of the goal.

If you are getting the second, you might need to flip the script and avoid the gatekeepers altogether.

You might need to stick to my 4 rules.

Rule 1:  I do not write for free. I publish on my own platform, unless you pay me.
Rule 2:  I do not write for free. I publish on my own platform, unless you pay me.
Rule 3:  I do not write for free. I publish on my own platform, unless you pay me.
Rule 4:  I do not write for free. I publish on my own platform, unless you pay me.

Of course, maybe I am doing it wrong.

There are many well laid-out arguments for systematic guest posting.

What do you think?
