I think what you need early on is a kind of sanity check. That's the reason people join forums or writer's groups or reluctantly show their initial efforts to family or friends. You just want to know if you have any talent at all or if you're fooling yourself.

Beyond that -- yeah, you have to rely on your own instincts and trial and error through submitting.

Personally, I never have been all that excited about getting published in some obscure literary magazine or e-zine -- although I'm reasonably sure I could.

There's a top tier -- but I don't think my stories really measure up.
