Submissions: What not to do — Moonrat’s Rules

I haven’t posted getting-published advice in a long time, because I’ve mostly put all I had to say in the page over there on the right.

But Moonrat — who if you don’t know is a former Editorial Ass. and is now an editor, but kept the “ass” — listed these rules regarding blunders that submitters make.

You’re probably not a stalker, but it’s easy to become an annoyer. In my earlier days, I broke two of the rules. Yes, I sent out MS to editors understanding what they were looking for.

And, yes, one time I called an editor. We had exchanged emails and letters, but he had never invited me to call. But actually, that turned out fairly well, since he gave me very good advice.
