The Complete Picture Part 2: The Gaming Years

In the previous post, I discussed the last nine years of my short story submissions and presented data about the number of submissions, rejections, and so on.

2020 Writing Review Part 4: The Novels

I thought I was done with my writing review posts, but I spoke too soon. I, uh, remembered that the bulk of my writing time in 2020 had not been spent on short stories and their submissions, but on a pair of novels. So,… Continue Reading “2020 Writing Review Part 4: The Novels”
