Deadlines for short story writers can be important—whether the deadline is self-imposed or set by a third party. Writer's Relief client Vivian Lawry loves having a deadline (http://www.writersrelief.com/). For Lawry, having a deadline for her short stories also played a key role in helping her get a jump on acceptances. Having a goal—as well as a team that's as supportive as the submission strategists at Writer's Relief—can be fundamentally helpful to creative writers.
Writer's Relief often imposes voluntary deadlines for short story writers (and other writers too). The company is an author's submission service that helps creative writers make their submissions to literary journals or literary agencies. We manage as much or as little of the submission process as our clients like.
Writers who are accepted to Writer's Relief's exclusive Full Service are requested to send new work for submission every two months (they can also opt to resubmit or skip a cycle, but emphasis is on submitting NEW work; this helps keep our clients focused on their writing).
Vivian Lawry, and others like her, joined Writer's Relief because she preferred to be writing, rather than doing the paperwork, research, and preparation involved in making submissions. Writer's Relief works with poetry, short stories, essays, and books.
Deadlines for short story writers like Vivian Lawry can seem scary at first, but they're actually very effective. Having a submission schedule as well as a team that supports you can be life-changing.
Lawry says: "Thank you Writer's Relief. Without you I wouldn't have more than 30 short stories forthcoming or in print right now."
Deadlines for short story writers can be a pivotal part of making successful submissions. Like losing weight or doing chores, it's important to identify milestones. Creativity can be like a muscle; the more you use it the stronger it gets.
