Every writer has a different method for getting the words down for the story that needs to be told.
Which do you think should come first – the market or the story?
I used to write what I wanted and then tried to find a market for it. I would spend a lot of time revising the piece so it would fit the market. This was a bit of a waste of time and didn’t do much service to the story.
Now I do a little bit of both. I write what I want with an eye towards the market or the theme. If it fits, then I submit it. If it doesn’t fit, I save it until I find something that seems like a good fit.
