Excuse Editor's Writing Markets List-- The Scoop
Poetry, Fiction, Memoir, Scholarly, Humor... there are so many options to choose from. Shake it up--if you usually write short stories, try a personal essay. Serious poet? Laugh a little, take a stab at some humor. Taking a creative break from your norm can be a good way to shake it up; you'll feel refreshed and ready when you get back to The Writing Projects, Already in Progress.
How do you decide what to write? Do you look for a market first and fine tune it for their publication; or do you write and search for the 'perfect fit' later? Does knowing there are so many opportunities inspire you or freeze you up?
