Re: Should I Quit?

Thanks. I suspect the new editor issue and lack of customers is more of a problem than my writing.

Should I Quit?

I am frustrated. Put in about 8 articles, tried to do 4 a week. 3 rejected due to editor's input (nothing grammatical). Those that have stayed have not sold. Maybe I've lost my content writing ability. Hard to make it as a writer.

Re: Is Coronavirus content allowed or not?

One editor asked me to put Covid-19 in the title and body. Another editor told me to change my article to make it evergreen and take pandemic out of it. It will require an entire rewrite. Perhaps an email to writers about this rule would have been helpful. Also am being told to limit short summaries...

Put them in date order. I'd like to see 2020 posts more easily.

Re: slow payer

In my experience, the buyer still has a right to refuse the article and then it is put in the general pool. (Then the writer shakes her head and said, what a bunch of BS.) :cry:

Editor is Subjective

One article I wrote focused on this time of sheltering at home during the pandemic (which could last many more months) and the editor asked me to add "Covid-19" to the title and in the body. Another 2 articles focused on pandemic issues (such as home remodeling has increased during the pan...

Guideline Question

In the past I was asked to may my short summary longer. Lately, an editor has asked me to make my 2 paragraph summary into one. Is this a rule?
Often, lately, there is nothing wrong with the article apart from requests like this. Time-consuming.

PLAGARIZED

An article was rejected. It was a re-write of my own article from 2010 - significantly changed. Is that not allowed?

They had problems a few weeks ago. Maybe you had tried on that day.

Re: edit, resubmit w/o rejection

If you have the original or if you have the full document accessible via the edit feature where you copy and paste it into word to work on, you might want to start over to make your changes and resubmit it as a new article and then go and delete the existing one. I have done it this way.

Re: How to Use Rejected Articles?

I agree with you two. I just got 3 rejections. One asked a question in the summary and I was told the last paragraph was for a conclusion and shouldn't be asking more questions. It was something like, "Could this be the time for you to take your first step?" What a bunch of nonsense. The o...

How to Use Rejected Articles?

I've had a few rejections lately where I was told not to resubmit. Felt like quite a slap in the face. Okay, I've been humbled. Maybe should have let the articles simmer longer. Anyhow, I'm not to resubmit so what suggestions does anyone have to sell elsewhere or put to good use? One I put on my per...

Re: Article rejected because summary was 29 words instead of

I have had a few rejections lately that the editor told me not to resubmit (tossed). I was floored and hurt. Usually, they point out things to correct. I guess they don't want to re-read stuff. But what does it cost them to put it up for sale (even if THEY don't like it) and let a customer decide? I...
