Pickupapen, can you lend your magic potion for being able to fathom writing for hours and hours on end without stopping? Because the only time I word-vomited ten pages was like? Only once? And my hand hurt real bad so I had to stop? You’re a fire, gal. Glad you’re here to share your energy and enthusiasm with this group!
I can say I write for myself but then there’s this part in me who would love to share my stuff with others. Is it a need for acknowledgment? An authentic pleasure in watching others enjoy quality literature (I wish!)? Are you trying to share a message, teach a lesson to the world, or inspire others? Do you write as a cathartic release?
Seems like it’s best to adjust ‘submission guidelines’ according to the audience.
Have you considered the possibility of self-publishing your work? Not speaking out of experience here but I assume you don’t have to adhere to restrictive guidelines outlined by frum publishers who need to cater to the sensitive needs of the frum oilam? Anyone mind jumping in here?
