Sorry about posting this a day late; I spent most of yesterday driving back to Ohio from North Carolina.  To be honest, I didn’t do any of the driving.  Mostly I read and slept.  My beach vacation is over. 

These statistics are all for short stories, poems, or contest entries. Book reviews are not included.

  1. Sales in October: 0
  2. Rejections in October: 0
  3. Submissions sent out in October: 1
  4. Total stories/poems pending responses: 2

Yes, my drabble has been out 248 days waiting to be acknowledged.  If I don’t hear something this month I will definitely go ahead and consider it rejected.  The market still has a backlog of submissions to sift through but they are also sending out acceptances for pieces that arrived after mine. 

This month I attended the Muse Online Writers Conference.  The short story I was hoping to edit and send out based on the feedback I received at the conference didn’t happen.  It needs a lot of work and I’m not entirely certain where to begin.  But the good news is that I was able to edit another short story and it’s what I sent out in October.  I also updated my bio page with feedback I received from the conference. 

Without a doubt, there is more to last month’s writing progress but my brain is a bit mushy at the moment.  I’ve been writing off and on today in order to catch up to the daily word count needed to complete NaNoWriMo this year.  I’m about to begin writing Chapter Four and I’m not sure yet what’s going to happen.  Hopefully my Inner Editor will stay away and I’ll get to see what happens.
