So Happy Together! A Writer’s Love Story | Writer’s Relief

Once upon a time, there was a writer who was looking for true love. This wistful writer dreamed of hitting it off with literary editors and agents who would love and accept his work—and even publish it!

Alas, the writer soon discovered that making a literary love connection is not easy.

He even tried his luck at speed dating: sending out submissions willy-nilly to everyone and anyone in hopes that something would click. Nope.

There may be plenty of fish in the sea…but it seemed none were biting. All he got was a pile of “Dear John” rejection letters. So disheartening!

The forlorn writer was close to losing confidence in himself and his writing. Maybe it was time to forget the literary dating game and become a hermit surrounded by stacks of unpublished writing.

Then he noticed someone in his writing group who was making connections, getting published, and even winning literary awards. She was everyone’s sweetheart!

“What’s your secret?” Our writer asked.

“You need a professional matchmaker!” the popular scribe replied while adding another publishing credit to her calendar.

“You mean Match.com?”

“No, silly…”

WritersRelief.com!”

Writer’s Relief has been successfully matching writers with the right literary agents and editors for almost twenty-five years. No tricky love potions or bouquets of flowers needed!

So the writer sent his work to the matchmaking mavens at Writer’s Relief for consideration. And they could tell…this writer had potential. They got his work in tip-top shape with the best-looking formatting and the finest cover and query letter style so he would make a great first impression on potential soul mates.

Then the Writer’s Relief strategists—aka publishing cupids—targeted the writer’s work with pinpoint accuracy to the literary editors and agents who would be a perfect match for his work. As it turns out, he’d been wooing the wrong ones! He was looking for love in all the wrong places, looking for love…—OK, we’ll stop. Back to the story.

The Writer’s Relief strategy worked.

It didn’t happen overnight—but with the Writer’s Relief experts in his corner, the writer soon began to see his first acceptance letters.

Little by little, he was building his reputation as a writer—and his confidence.

Editors wanted to publish his poems and stories. A literary agent asked to see more pages of his book. Our blushing writer’s dance card was full.

As it turned out, the more love he put into his own writing career, the more good energy came back to him. And if he ever doubted himself again, the team at Writer’s Relief was there to encourage him to never give up.

His goal had always been to get matched with the right editors and agents.

But the first, most important match he needed to make was with Writer’s Relief.

And THAT, as it turned out, was a match made in heaven.
