Some 2017 writing numbers

For you stats nerds out there, here’s how my writing year looks like:


Total: 31

Acceptances: 5 (16% – a new record!)
Form rejections: 17 (55%)
Personal rejections: 9 (29%)

Sales breakdown

Pro: 1
Semi-pro: 3
Donation: 1


Two of my sales resulted from personal solicitations from editors. One of those is a fundraiser (see Another anthology achievement unlocked), so that’s another milestone for me.

Works in progress:

Short stories: 8
Novella: 1

Overall, it’s been a pretty successful year. For 2018, I’d like to see more submissions, more exercise, better sleep, and less anxiety.

Guess I have some homework.
