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?
