Writer Tip: Shelley Munro

“My advice is to keep hope in the mail ie. always have more than one submission out with editors or agents at a time. If you receive a rejection, this means you’ll still have another submission to pin your hopes on, and it will cushion your disappointment about the rejection.

During my pre-published days I found the hope in the mail method worked well for me. I entered contests. I submitted manuscripts to editors and agents. I worked out a plan for each manuscript, and if I received a rejection, I’d evaluate the feedback and move on to the next part of my plan. Since becoming published, I still adhere to the hope in the mail method as much as possible. Having more than one submission floating around really does help cushion disappointment if you receive a rejection.”

  1. Great tip, Shelley!!! :grin:

  2. GREAT advice! I have 2 things out right now. 1 I should hear on very soon, the other, who knows? I think I subscribed to your advice subconsciously, but it does feel really good to know there’s more than 1 chance out there.

  3. Hope in the mail– what a great concept. We should all take that advice.

  4. I like this advice and think so many people get discouraged when they receive a rejection and give up and writting is about putting on a tough outer shell because the business aspect of writting is ….business and it’s tough
