[COLOR="Blue"]The second question I ask because now that I have truly started the 30 queries in 30 days, I'm finding that I can't do it. That's too much.
I couldn't do it either - It wouldn't be sustainable for me because I tend to be a feature writer. I put a lot into my queries. That said I probably spend 30% of my time on marketing (which I define as querying, touching base with editors by phone or email and networking), 5% on book keeping (I suck at book keeping and should bump it up), 10% on looking for story ideas and keeping up on magazines and the rest on researching and writing.
But, I'm wondering is that what the really successful writers do? Or do they do more?
They do what they can And it gets easier. When you have a few mags you write for regulary the whole process is a bit easier.
OK... I have now sent *two* follow-up emails to the editor of my wedding piece. Actually, three. I emailed her saying 'Wassup?' maybe a month and a half ago, and she got me to make some revisions but said she definitely wanted the piece, and was working out which issue to use it in. Then I sent the revised version in, and haven't heard back since, despite two (identical!) emails asking politely what was up.
What do I do now? The last of those emails was only a few days ago. How long do I wait; and after that should I ring her, or what?
