A Word From This eBook Excerpt:

The process of submitting articles begins with sending a query to an editor, continues through getting acceptance to write the article, and ends with submitting the article text itself. Barring some bumps along the way, the process is that simple.

Take note of the sequence: Query, acceptance, then writing. Before you write an article, you should sell it. That may sound backwards, but it is really how the publishing world works. You can submit finished articles, but this is usually a recipe for disappointment. Most editors want queries before assigning articles. Even if an editor likes the idea for an article, s/he usually wants to provide some guidance before it is written. This can't happen if the article is already completed. Or it means major rewrites, and major headaches. Working on spec—meaning, submitting completed articles rather than simply the ideas for different stories—is usually an unprofitable habit for freelancers.
