Welcome, readers! Here you’ll find my template for a pitch/submission spreadsheet (with simple instructions), ready for you to fill in–just click on this link. It will take you to a Google document–you can click on “File” and “Make a copy” to download the spreadsheet to your computer and tweak it to fit your needs.
If you’d like tips from other writers about using a spreadsheet, you can read my article on The Write Life here. You’ll find tips on how to use this spreadsheet for yourself along with ways other writers use spreadsheets to keep track of their submissions.
Here are a few more things you might be interested in:
- Scratch Paper, my almost-weekly writing-related podcast! A short (usually 15-minute-long) podcast in which I share a writing and reading update (will I *ever* finish my novel?) and a mini-lesson or pep talk for writers who are trying to get published (or for creative people who are trying to write). Great for fiction, nonfiction, and Instagram caption writers, from total beginner (never written a page!) to multi-manuscript veterans. Take a listen here!
- My newsletter, also called Scratch Paper. I deliver fun stuff–my podcast plus updates–to your inbox, and I will keep it short and sweet. Promise. You’ll also get prompts and worksheets to make you happy while writing, periodically and at random. Sign up here.
