In the spirit of showing my daughter that success isn’t measured by winning all the time, this year I’m compiling and posting writing/submission stats.
New material: 67 haiku, 20 poems, 5 flash fictions, and 1 story. I spent most of the year in edit-mode, but completed no projects.
I didn’t (and won’t) make 100 submissions this year. Not counting sending a few collection submissions, I’ve sent out 73 submission packets. Not quite 3/4 of the goal. I had no fiction or non-fiction acceptances this year. 16 haiku were published. 8 regular poems published. There are 8 submission packets still outstanding. These stats don’t included the chapbook and book manuscript submissions.
I want to thank all the journals and editors who accepted my work this year. You gave me many bright spots what was in many ways a very rough year for me.
To all my fellow writers, I wish you a prosperous New Year and lots and lots of acceptance letters.
