mmarotta Posted June 13, 2010 Report Share Posted June 13, 2010 Basically, it is pretty easy and anyone who posts regularly to boards like this is aleady fairly good at the basics. Myself, numismatics or whatver, I find it easy to break into a publication via the Letters column. If you can distill an idea into 250 good words, you have the knack. One problem that I have seen in others over the years is wanting to say everything all at once. Sometimes publications need to fill space and without naming names you get these 2000 word tomes on "Everything I Know About the Coins of Freedonia." That aside, you should not allow your own uncertainty prevent you from submittting. Believe me, I know about writer's block, but I read this quip, where this woman said. "My father was a truck driver and he went to work every day for 30 years and never had Trucker's Block." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
