If all my friends jumped off a cliff, I’d set up a lemonade stand and sell tickets. Then I’d jump too, drenched in lemonade, with dollar bills fluttering from my hands and a nice sensible bungee cord around my waist.
2007 writing numbers.
(The numbers don’t add up, but that’s because some stories were submitted in 2006 and sold in 2007, and some 2007-submitted stories are still circulating.)
Inventory: 10. 6 circulating, 4 waiting for reading periods to open or requiring minor edits.
Stories that could be completed and submitted in the next month: 4, if I focus and work hard. I tend to work in batches, which means I have a small pile of stories that are all ready at the same time.
Acceptance rate = roughly 23%, depending on how you count it.
I’m not a New Year’s Resolution kind of person (every day is a new day), but my plan is to write a bunch of new stories and then kill a dragon with my bare hands.
