Being Creative One Day at a Time

http://www.bubblews.com/news/8322542-what-every-writer-should-know-before-they-post-anything-online

You’re spend hours, even days or months polishing that short story of yours to perfection. And now you want to share your hard work and creativity with your readers.

This is what every writer wishes to do. It’s what we LIVE for. But before you hit the post button on your blog, stop and think about what you are about to do.

If you have aspirations of submitting your short story, novella, novel, poetry, etc., to a publisher, be it online, or for book or magazine, remember this VERY important rule:

If you publish a story on a blog, even if it is your own personal blog, such as WordPress, Tumblr, LiveJournal, etc., in other words ANY website that is accessible to the general public, it is considered PUBLISHED and will not be accepted.

I wish I had known that before. Oh, well. Lesson learned.
