Year End Summary Post

vanity shelf


It’s the time of year when everyone recaps the good and bad things that have happened in some way that is relevant to them. Those of you who have been reading my very sporadic blog for awhile know that, for me, that usually means writing stats. So, here we go.

It’s been an odd year. I started off gangbusters, with 273 submissions by the end of June. Then July broke the momentum with health issues, and I never fully recovered. Still, here at the end of the year, I have 311, so not bad. Next year I am going to try again for that 600, but that will be part of next week’s post.

Final tallies all the way across the spreadsheet were:

157, 667 words written (over 100k of that in November)

186 rejections

90 acceptances

5 novels published (two of them re-prints)

several photographs sold

the first Garrett Goldthwaite stand-alone published

numerous poetry and prose sales to anthologies

And all this around pneumonia and kidney stones…

Wait till you see what I want to do next year!
