What's a good program or technique for tracking submissions? I need something that'll keep track of who I've submitted to, when, if they've replied, and preferably tell me how long it's been out. Any suggestions? Preferably something that I don't need an internet connection to use. (IE, not a website.)
I like Duotrope's online submission tracker: http://duotrope.com/
As a bonus, they also have a large, searchable database of markets, categorized in a variety of ways.
Or maybe they're a market database, and the tracker is a bonus. Either way, I like 'em.
Alas, it's an online service.
I use a database that I built using Filemaker Pro. It's far from perfect, but I'd like to share my notes about submission tracking in case they help you to decide how you would like to track your submission.
p.s. this same question is being asked in a few places on here:
