#Day 3: get it right the first time

There are a few things that publishers make very clear in their guidelines.

If you don’t hear from them, then assume that they’re not seeking to pursue with you and “no further correspondence will be entered.”

Or don’t submit your script more than once, because they won’t take the submission into account.

I thought of my first screwed-up submission. I got pissed off at myself because it was for a publisher that I really wanted to work with.

I feel stupid for not having done it properly. But instead of letting it go, it makes me want to give it another try, even if it goes against the guidelines.

After all, I have nothing to lose, what can happen? An endless silence that I am already experiencing?

I know the story, publishers receive hundreds of script every week and can’t allow themselves to read and re-read all of them.

In the publishing world, there is no second chance, you have to get it right the first time.
