Another month come and gone. Here’s how I did.
February was, well, not spectacular. I would have liked more submissions, fewer rejections, and, you know, maybe an acceptance. None of that was to be, unfortunately. The five submissions for the month give me sixteen for the year, and I sent one out this morning for seventeen. So I’m still on pace for one-hundred subs. No acceptances yet, which is a little disconcerting, though 2020 started off slow too, and it definitely picked up. I just need to be patient. The acceptances will come. (Oh, god, PLEASE the acceptances come.)
Six rejections this month.
Six more rejection in February, all of the form variety. Not much to report there, honestly; they were all pretty run of the mill. One of the upper-tier rejections was from a pro market I’d never submitted to previously, so that’s mildly encouraging. I’ll definitely sub there again.
The only publication I had in February (which I didn’t tally above) is my monthly Rejectomancy article at Dark Matter Magazine. Also, my story “The Past, History” was published in their second issue, which came out today. I’ll count that one officially in the March tally. In the meantime, you can check out my article on submission wait times by clicking the link below.
And that was my month. Hopefully, yours was better. 🙂
