Well, it’s that time of the year when we look back and forward in the same instant. No wonder we drink.
This year I focused on marketing my short fiction, learning new forms (twitter fiction, flash fiction) and learning to manage book length projects.
It was a good year in terms of sheer number of publications, a good year in terms of adapting to new forms, and a not quite so good year with book length projects.
Short stories (including Flash)
Submissions = 158
Acceptances = 18
to paying markets = 9
New stories written = 37 give or take a couple
Submissions = 24
Acceptances = 11
to paying markets = 3
Twitters written = 51
Completed = 1
Sold = 0
My goals for the upcoming year are:
1. Write and submit one story per week (Write1Sub1)
2. Publish at least 20 short stories, at least two professional markets.
3. Revise and submit fantasy novel
4. Put out the best possible Triangulation anthology.
Happy New Year to friends and family and colleagues who read this blog. Let’s make 2011 something special, shall we?
