Continuing my recurring feature where I publicly post a report card of fiction writing activity each month. This series is inspired by Aeryn Rudel’s blog Rejectomancy. Each month I’ll post a report card summarizing words written, submissions, rejections, and hopefully acceptances.
Here’s the results for this month:
|DARK CONDUIT||Novel||10,221||But I also cut ~9500 words elsewhere so I only net < 100|
Man, fuck 2017. Between the depressing political climate, illness, and travel, I needed weaker on writing output than I have in months.
Submissions are keeping pace. While no acceptances yet, I did receive a wonderful personal rejection with excellent feedback from one of the markets. I’m going to make a point to keep more short fiction in the mix as occasional stress relief on the novel, and so I continue to practice the submissions process.
Onward to 2018. Here’s hoping we have nowhere to go but up.
