Get Noticed!

A few days ago, I spoke about rejection -- and wanted to know how fellow writers handled it. In an even earlier post, I wrote about how to overcome rejection. Now, I'm going to share with you my tips to improve your chances of getting an editor or publisher to notice your work. In order to avoid rejection, you must have something that stands out from among a pool of hopeful would-be writers. Hopefully, these tips will inspire you to continue writing!

Because freelance writing remains a highly competitive market, oftentimes being a "good" writer isn't enough. In many cases, you can be a highly articulate, wonderful writer but still end up being rejected by an editor. Why? Because in order to compete, you have to showcase your particular talent -- a talent that makes your writing the best it can be. In other words, you have to grab an editor's attention and keep it.

In order to do this, you have to forgo all efforts and modesty and let it all out there for an editor to see. Don't be afraid to show them you have what it takes! You can be a great writer, but unless you stand out from all the rest of the great writers, you're chances of impressing an editor significantly decrease. Additionally, if you care about what you're writing, that will show through to an editor and make your piece that much better.

If you have any additional tips about how to get noticed by an editor or publisher, please feel free to leave them in the comments. I hope you have a terriffic weekend!
