Technically, February is not over, but I’ve put in all the writerly work I’m gonna for the month. So here’s how I did.
That, my friends, is what you call an uneventful month. Six submissions puts me at 16 for the year, which an average of 8 per month. That places me just a tad off-pace for my yearly goal of one-hundred. Other than a smattering of rejections, not much else happened. The month was primarily devoted to figuring out what I needed to do with my novel, which I did, so I’ll chalk that up as a win.
Four rejections in February.
Nothing too special in any of the rejections. The personal rejection had some good feedback, which I’ll put to use in the next revision of that particular story. I recently published a blog post about the specific editorial feedback I tend to get, and it includes some of the notes from this particular rejection. You can check that out here. The other rejections where just your garden-variety form rejection from pro markets.
I shall, once more, point you toward my new Q&A column, THE REJECTONOMICON, over at Dark Matter Magazine and invite you to submit questions about submissions, rejections, and writing in general.
The first article went up last month. Check out that first article by clicking the link in the banner below.
So, how do you submit questions to me? Easy. Here are the submission guidelines.
I’m getting some great questions, but I need more, so send ’em in! 🙂
And that was February. How was your month?
