Recap and Resolutions…

I am resolved above all else to do better with blogging this year. I do not promise daily, but I will keep you in the loop when something interesting happens.

So, first, lets take a look at the numbers for last year. You remember my goal was to make three hundred rejections. Well, I didn’t even make half that…which saddens me. Final numbers were 233 submissions, of which 37 are still outstanding with no response as yet. 145 rejections; 43 acceptances, of which 22 have been published (that I know of…some of the webzines may have gone up when I wasn’t looking.)

Considering that I didn’t start the project until February, we have looked at all the parameters and adjusted downward a bit for the coming year.

Here are my 2014 Resolutions:

1) 200 rejections

2) 50 acceptances

3) average 25 submissions a month

4) at least one non-fiction sale

5) new poetry book

 

I have some others, but those are the relevant ones. Some of them are pretty lofty…but we’ll see what happens. 🙂

Feel free to share your resolutions or question mine in the comments.
