May 2008

No depression allowed for how May turned out! I completed my writing challenge (which I’ll write more about tomorrow) and my latest book review for Niteblade hit the internet late last night.

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

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

Pending responses include two poems to one market, a drabble under consideration at one market, and a short story under consideration at another market.  The assumed rejection is for a short story I sent out last October.  The response time given by the editor was six months but it came and went with no response to the submission or my query so I’ve assumed rejection and withdrawn it from the market. 

The important thing to remember is to keep writing and if I want my work published to keep submitting it.


  1. I’m so proud of you for finishing your Writo de Mayo challenge. I absolutely failed this year LOL but I learned quite a bit about myself in the process, so I’m not sad.

  2. Thanks, Rhonda! I think challenges like this are always learning experiences even if we don’t meet our original goals.
