7 Good Reasons to Submit Your Story (September PubSub3rdFri)

Seven Good Reasons to Submit Your Story (September PubSub3rdFri) by Joan Y. Edwards

Dear Pub Subbers,

Here are seven good reasons to submit your story.

  1. This is the only way that an agent or editor will be able to discover how great your story is.
  2. It increases your chances for getting published 100% from not submitting it.
  3. It says to your inner self that you believe in your story. That you have faith in it. Faith in your story takes it to publication.
  4. The world needs your story to make it a better, stronger, more knowledgeable, better educated, wiser, happier place,  and to solve a problem for your reader(s).
  5. You will receive money or other good things for your service to the world.
  6. Others will validate your worth and encourage you to write another story. You will be helping others.
  7. God will be proud of you for sharing your gift with others.

My PubSub3rdFri posts have words, skills, and resources to encourage you to submit your work, and explain the steps to take to get you there to submission day:

  1. Submitting just feels good, especially when a “Yes” is your response!

    Thanks for keeping us motivated, Joan. Long live PubSub3rdFri and its creator!

    Linda A.


    • Dear Linda,
      You’re very welcome. You’ve been a steady and loyal submitter every month of PubSub3rdFri – You have sold two stories to magazines and gotten contracts from two other companies to write teacher’s guides or reader’s guides for books and magazines. Just think where submitting your work has gotten you. Go, Linda, Go. Yee Haw! Celebrate your sweet self!

  2. Joan, I love reason number two.


    • Dear Margaret,
      I’m glad you liked Number 2. A little realistic humor is good for the soul, isn’t it? I hope you’re doing great. Thanks for leaving your comment. I love hearing from you.

      Enjoy your day.
      Celebrate you right now.

  3. I love #2 also! Funny, but absolutely true. I downloaded your Plot Diagram PDF – thanks a bunch.


    • Dear Karen, It’s great that you liked #2 also. Funny but absolutely true things seem to be the funniest to me. I’m glad you downloaded my Plot Diagram and Explanation. Let me know what you think of it, if you get a chance. Do something fun to celebrate you today!
