Use of "We"

The guidelines say :

Other POVs – Using the second person, or “you,” to address the reader is acceptable. Using “we” when it refers to the reader and writer, or humanity in general, is acceptable.

But I have had an article sent back months ago for the use of "we".

Evergreen Nonsense

To write for the current market requires being current. I'm annoyed at another article being sent back for not behind evergreen mentioning the pandemic. They thought the pandemic would be a month and it's going on year three! This is no different than writing on a software tool that goes out of date...

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?

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.
