Summing up this year

30 Dec

I didn’t set any resolutions this year, but I did have a few things I wanted to do. Let’s see how I fared, shall we?

Submitting More Stories.
I think we can say that was an outright win. I’ve subbed more stories this year than ever before. Also had more stories out in submission at once than ever before as well. Yes, it DID mean more rejections but it also meant more acceptances.
I had 9 stories picked up this year.
Of those 6 were for money. 4 of them are yet to be released

Write On A Regular Basis.
So I haven’t been quite as fruitful this year as in previous years. I’ve completed 103 short stories. I also completed a novel too. More on that further down the page.

First “What’s Currently In Submission?” entry created.
February – 7 stories out.
March – 11 stories out.
April – 13 stories out.
May – 14 stories out. (No entry for June)
July – 11 stories out.
Aug – 9 stories out.
Sept – 9 stories out.
Oct – 18 stories out. New personal best.
Nov – 16 stories & 1 poem out.
Dec (start) – 18 stories & 1 poem out. New personal best.
Dec (end) – 22 stories & 1 poem out. New personal best.

Established rules for Camp NaNoWriMo April 2017.
30 short stories or 30,000 words written. Reached 30,259 April 15th. WIN!

Established rules for Camp NaNoWriMo July 2017.
Decided to write a novel. 40k target set.
41056 words written by day 20, official win! 50017 words in total on day 24.

Tried Story A Day September. That was a bad mistake. I wrote 23 stories and hated the entire exercise. I’ve never enjoyed anything less.
