March in Review

March was a good month. I shall call it the month of ones (and then some) Here we go.

Stories written: 1
acceptances: 1
holds: 1
books finished: 1 (so it was a novella, I still finished writing it, still untitled officially)
Stories published: 1 (Nine on 52 Stitches)
rejections: 9
Stories out in submission land: 15

Okay, so the last two really aren't anywhere close to one, but it is still a much better month than the one I had a year ago, officially the slowest month I have ever had as a writer with a whopping 3 rejections. I am glad my email picked up the pace. Of course last year I didn't have near the friends in cyberspace as I have now. I didn't have anyone to vent my frustrations to.

Here is to a happy April. :)

Sounds like a great month. I've got to get some more stories out there, myself.

I don't think we need to get more stories out, we need to get better stories out. (At least I do)

Cate Gardner said...

I swear to God, I already read this post and commented - must be losing my mind.

Congrats again on finishing your novella. Hope your April is already proving bright and sparkly. :)

Jamie Eyberg said...

Cate- deja vu, all over again.

Nine was creepy : ) And venting is marvelous *gazes lovingly at own blog*

Here here to a happy April.

The "novels finished: 1" is a nice milestone. Novellas count! Here's to an excellent April!

BT said...

A good solid month of work and reward - congrats.

9 - one less than ten
15 - contains a number one

See, it is a month of ones ;c)

I wish you a wonderful April

Jamie Eyberg said...

Nat- glad you liked Nine.

Danielle- Happy April, right back at you.

K.C.- some of the great literature of the 20th century was in novella form. If only publishers would recognize that, again.

B.T.- I hope to see a month of more than ones this April. At least in the acceptance column.
