Writing eventually gets done and then it's time to send it out. You look up some possible markets in Writer's Digest magazines and Writer's Market. Then you sit back and wait. You know you sent it to the right newspaper and they won't accept multiple submissions so you abide by their rules. Within a week or so, you get a rejected letter from them. You start to despair and figure you will try others but this time you're not going to follows their rules. Why worry? If there are more than one editors who want it, then you will have a problem but it's unlikely that will happen.
