Progress Report–September 2014

I know I haven’t done one of these for a while. Needless to say, the summer was absolutely crazy for my real life and a lot of writing stuff got placed on the back burner.  Here’s a recap of my 2014 goals, and where I stand with each one:.

1. Finish 18 new stories.

Progress report: Finished just 1 new short story since May.  Total for the year-to-date:

2. 100 short story submissions.

Progress report:I can’t give you a breakdown by month, but I’ve sent a total of 58 short story submissions as of the end of August.

3. Keep up with this blog and Twitter

Nothing to report here.

A couple of interesting notes. One, I sold another story, this time to Fantasy Scroll. I will post the direct link to the story when it goes up. Second, I’m quickly closing in on a dubious milestone in my writing life: I have accumulated a total of 95 rejections. Only 5 to go before I hit the big 100. On the one hand, that’s a hell of a lot of Rs. On the other… it does mean I’m getting my work out there.

How about you? How are you doing on your goals for this year?
