I need to have at least twenty submissions out at any given time in order to feel that I am producing, I’ve realized. This does not mean 20 stories, this may mean 5 stories submitted to 4 places, etc.
Because when the rejections (and the acceptances, Thank God) come in, I need to feel that there is still something to wait for…to hope for.
My own personal submission guideline, you see.

I hope to have enough works in progress to do this sort of literary juggling myself. I think I might make it this summer. You again give me hope.
You should write a how-to book about how to remove the quotes from the phrase I’m a “writer.”
Wow Caveblogem, that’s one of the nicest posts ever! Thank you so much for the compliment. -mjb
