I just sent a query email to a magazine. As is my wont I recorded it on my work diary. Then I looked back over the lat year. I really shouldn't have done that.
Out of 25 queries or submissions, I had 8 'No reply', 16 rejections and 1 'yes'.
What can I learn from this?
Either give up trying or - and this is what I intend to do - try harder!
Wowee! I have had an instant reply, asking for more details, from the magazine I just approached! It's a start ...
