Publishing Short Stories for MoneyShort stories for money publish
Is it stupid to write short stories if I want to post them later to make money?
I had Andrew cover this as well as possible, but by working with blogging, both from the point of view of typing and public relations, I thought I would be adding a few additional points. Easy ways to back up a copy of a CS licence for your weblog are a good way to do this.
Qualitatively high-quality typing comes with exercise, and having a community forums to show that typing and your comments are always a plus! Thanks for your feedbacks! You will receive personal feedbacks. If you can't show that you have a good following, I wouldn't want the stories you post on the blogs to be very appetising to editors.
When you come to a publishers website and say that this story/page receives 1,000 or 10,000 or 1 million visits per months, the publishers will see that you have a prospective public and can decide to publish/republish this tale or, almost as importantly, take a look at your other work. At a time when Twitter sites and bloggers have received offers for books, showing that you have an audiences is a great way to make your work appealing to a publishers, even if you have to give up the pecuniary resources of a storyline (or a hundred) to do it.
Even at this old of e-books and self-publication, you can always own an e-book of history pub. This is something I have experimented with on Storylab (http://storylab. us/store) and even if the sells aren't great, it can increase notoriety. When it comes to the theft of an idea, 95% of the letters are good.
As you continue to work on it, you will enhance your performance and the notions will not be so important. To believe Joseph Campbell (The Helo with a Thousand Faces), your concept is probably not as inventive as you think (nor are mine). This means, in order to do this well, you have to familiarize yourself with the opportunity that humans acquire your own work.
I' m publishing one storyline a weeks in the Storylab. Now I have more stories to tell and almost finished stories than I would have thought possible at the beginning of the blogs. Well typing is only half the rent, with something like this getting your name out there, good advertising, is almost as important and will take a great deal of a while.
When you' re not ready to put your advertising into your blogs, it may be best to just look for conventional ways to jump over the blogs, otherwise you loose the advantages of first right to publish without the advantages of publishing through a blogs. Thanks for your feedbacks! You will receive personal feedbacks.
The majority of short stories and fictional magazines want exclusivity in their work. You will sometimes find places that record already released works, but they will hardly ever charge you anything. As soon as you publish something on a blogs, it is forever available on the Internet, so don't try to delete a posting before you submit it, as it may come back to you.
When you want to enhance your handicraft, get your comments, there are many free, personal pages that will help you without bringing your work to the general population. Scriptophile.com is one I used for my feedbacks (including the three tracks I released last year in Flash), but there are others.
When you want to post things on your blogs to place them there, do it. But if you want to thrive and see your name in the press, join a site or an on-premises writer group, get feed-back, learn, practice and submit until you get adopted. Since 2007 I've been writing short stories and wondering for almost as long.
Not only will it give you invaluable feedbacks that will enhance any stories of the distant past, but it will expand your audiences and force you to increase the calibre of your letter when you know that those you know will read it.
Unfortunately, the whole publishing system is out of date when it comes to later publication in order to earn money. The majority of publishing houses still require short scripts to be sent in by post, and I would wager that some do not even know what a "blog" is. By that said, I have found about 75% of the editors I have been contacting to be against re-publishing stories that have been published on blogs.
But the more fashionable publishing houses will usually consider your history when it is published in an "obscure" environment, such as a scholastic magazine or a dismal post. Fortunately, I have not yet had to concern myself with the theft of your sentiments. However, short stories are short, and while someone can stolen an item or copy a piece, they can't stolen your own individual styles or inventive thoughts.
Eventually someone will steal a tale and you can't do anything about it, you can keep on and on. If you' re a celebrity, they' re gonna think that story's yours. I' m publishing full length Google+ versions of my stories as they are published, which gives me a third-party system where the postal data cannot be changed so that I can show that my history was on the web under my name at some point.
Finally, there are some pages with guidelines for the presentation of short stories. It can also be helpful: a spread sheet I created to keep an overview of the publishing houses and my contributions. It' certainly not stupid to be blogging about short stories........ Those who are following you are those who are enjoying and trusting what you are blogging about.
Everything you read about blogs can be used for any number of things..... inclusive e-books, which in fact can be resold later for profits. Making your blogs an assets you can manage, especially in the case of a blogserver who has created a fairly good e-mail subscription listing. You' ll improve your networking skills in your own alcove, and your blogs will help you to be more visible on-line, regardless of your whereabouts.
When you have something good to blogs, just do it..... because it' something you really want to do. Blogs because you want to connect with others. Blogs because you want to exchange responses with those who are looking for them. You are blogging because you want to exchange the experience you have had that others have not.
Because it is important to you..... It' s true that guys are stealing stuff on-line all days, all weeks.... all year round. So if that's something you know about and what you're good at, be sure to post about short stories. To overanalyzing this and never doing anything for the sake of what you think someone else could do with your own concept is the greatest criminal act you can do to yourself.
Don't be the one who thinks about it all the time and finally.... thinks what really is a good one. While building your blogs, research ways to safeguard your products and your own thoughts after building a certain dynamism, publicity, a certain level of credibility and exposure on the Internet.
It' s stupid to try to tell yourself out of something that could be great, worrying that someone else likes your ideas enough to want to copy them. Hopefully you will launch your short stories on your own blogs and I really hopes it will be everything you want.
For starters, don't let anyone steal your history. So I started bloogging some of my short stories, but then I ruled that this wasn't a good one. Editors will consider any stories posted on-line, even on your own private blogs, as having been posted and are unlikely to republish your stories. Most likely you won't get much good feedback/criticism by publishing your stories on your own private blogs.
You will get more readership/recognition and perhaps more money by publishing in literature journals. So it' a good way to find a fellowship of individuals who can give you feedbacks on your work. They can be found off-line and on-line and there are places behind password and in the forum where your stories are not public and are not regarded as publish.
This means that you sometimes want to publish an fancy storyline on your own blogs, and you definitely want to announce whether your work will be public.
