October in Retrospect

I have managed to blow my record by not getting acceptances in October. This is the first time since November I believe. As they say, all good things must come to an end. I did receive seven rejections and managed to write two new stories and start on another (I still need to finish up that Zombie Western). I had two stories published. Beneath the Willows was published in Bards and Sages and The Glass Jar was published in Fissure. In an uninteresting side note both of these publication managed to get my name wrong. Bards and Sages fixed it but as Fissure is a chapbook form and has already gone to print I will be known in there as James Eyberg.

Today is the first day of NaNo and I should be working on that, but I am using this as a writing exercise and trying to loosen my stiff fingers (because getting old stinks). Good luck to everyone doing it and to all of you out there cheerleading us on, thank you.

September was my no-acceptances month. Sounds like you had a really good October despite the lack of an acceptance. You'll probably make extra sales in November.

Good luck with Nano! I'm at -800 words because I'm throwing out what I've already written. Everyone else is beating me already.

Better to figure it out now than later. Good luck.

September and October were my no-acceptance months... I guess I best get used to it... Good luck with NaNo.

Cate- Let's hope that November is full of acceptances and that rejections are banished from our inboxes. (Hey, we can dream, can't we?)
