I agree that you need to write a lot. I disagree about the publications. My stories have done best on small or medium-sized publications and when they’re self-published. I’ve had self-published stories curated several times. The stories I’ve had accepted into big publications earned me practically nothing. They quickly get lost and forgotten.

I write whatever I want, like poetry The New Yorker wouldn’t dare print. Visit me at denisesheltonwrites.com.
