Ranks of the Rejected: Robert J. Schwalb

This time around on Ranks of the Rejected, I spoke with writer, game designer, and game developer Robert J. Schwalb. I was pretty stoked when Rob agreed to a Ranks of the Rejected interview, not only because he’s a great writer and a fellow… Continue Reading “Ranks of the Rejected: Robert J. Schwalb”

September 2015 Rejection Roundup

Some of you are probably wondering, “Where are all the rejections on this rejection blog?” It’s a fair question, and the truth is I haven’t received many lately. That’s not for lack of submissions, though. I have a bunch under consideration, but the majority of the… Continue Reading “September 2015 Rejection Roundup”

A List of Links: Resources & Rejections

Here are more potentially useful links for the rejectomancer gathered haphazardly from across the blogosphere and beyond. 1) I recently discovered a great resource for spec-fic writers. It’s called Ralan’s SpecFic & Humor Webstravaganza, and it’s a little like Duotrope in that its a listing of… Continue Reading “A List of Links: Resources & Rejections”

The Quotable King: Go to Work

I think Stephen King is a veritable fountain of writerly wisdom, and much of that wisdom has been compiled in his excellent book On Writing. (Yes, I’m gonna plug the book every time.) He also dispenses useful advice (and criticism) in the form of quotes, many… Continue Reading “The Quotable King: Go to Work”

A List of Links: Flash Monsters & Famous Rejections

Here’s a short list of cool writerly things from the ‘ol blogosphere. Lot’s of useful stuff here for the rejectomancer. 1) Here’s a writing contest you should definitely check out if you’re into flash fiction and monsters. (And why wouldn’t you be?) The Molotov Cocktail,… Continue Reading “A List of Links: Flash Monsters & Famous Rejections”

The Quotable King: Identifying Talent

Stephen King is one of my favorite authors, and his book On Writing is, in my opinion, one of the best books on the craft you can buy. I like King’s no-bullshit approach to the subject and his blunt appraisal of what writing is… Continue Reading “The Quotable King: Identifying Talent”

Staying “Accountable” on Big Writing Projects

You gotta have a system. Every writer does. That thing you do to get from point A to point B, hit your deadlines, and hopefully decrease your stress along the way. I have a system, too, and a major part of it involves word… Continue Reading “Staying “Accountable” on Big Writing Projects”

Ranks of the Rejected: Josh Vogt

Time for another Ranks of the Rejected. This time, talented fantasy and sci-fi author Josh Vogt has agreed to give us the lowdown on his rejection experiences. Josh is another writer I met through Skull Island eXpeditions when I was heading up that imprint.… Continue Reading “Ranks of the Rejected: Josh Vogt”

Dealing with the Dreaded Multi-Rejection Day

You’ve been at this writing thing for a while now, and you’ve started to develop a fairly thick skin. The odd form rejection doesn’t really faze you anymore, and, hey, you’ve even had a couple of acceptances recently. I mean, you’re really starting to… Continue Reading “Dealing with the Dreaded Multi-Rejection Day”

A Short List of Writerly Woes

I was thinking about things writers do to make themselves miserable (well, things that have made me miserable, anyway). So, I came up with a short list of things I have done (or, regrettably, still do) that can be counterproductive to my writing and what I do to avoid them. Anyway, I thought… Continue Reading “A Short List of Writerly Woes”
