I am not a Number Paroled

Year-to-Date 2007 Writing Year Scorecard.

I have just ended my seventh month of my Writing Sabbatical Year. Let's see where my Year-to-Date report card is:

  • Submissions: 36 of 60+ (on track)
  • New Short Stories: 21 of 24+ (ahead)
  • Freaky Friday Fictions: 31 of 50+ (on track)
  • Books read: 24 of 24+ (ahead)
  • Novel #2 word count: 22,200 (on track)
  • TEoP

    From the TEoP Slushpile...

    TEoP Slushpile Scorecard
  • 120 total submissions

  • 115 total submissions read.
  • 105 total rejections.
  • 02 total submissions kept for rereads ('maybe' reactions).
  • 08 total "Yes!" responses.

  • 05 submissions to go.

    Some of these were depressingly bad. But, most were actually on theme.
