The Writing Process

I’ve been very productive with my writing this fortnight. A submission for 2000AD has been finish and needs only a quick review before sending it off. I’m pretty excited as it will be my first submission of any type of writing. I know it’s not to the quality of ‘War and Peace’, and I really wouldn’t mind it being rejected. It is, after all, my first submission, and I imagine first submissions would rarely see print. Even a simple reply stating ‘this is not really for us, but keep writing and submitting, we’d like to see more’ would absolutely blow my socks off.

Has anyone submitted to 2000AD? Any advice on how to make a submission stand out?

One thing I did learn this fortnight is that, if I sit at the computer with a blank document in front of me, I’ll rarely get anything done. But, give me a pen and paper, and stuff seems to happen. So far, I have hand written a four issue mini series synopsis, as well as the first six pages of issue one. Very happy with what I have done, but even happier with the discovery of a method of writing that actually keeps me writing!

  1. Did you submit a Tharg’s Futureshock type story Travis? Apparently those are the ones they like to receive from untested writers. Although I may be years out of date on this!
