In an attempt to put of finishing 'Lonely Susan' I've decided that I needed to update my submissions records for my short stories, including flash fiction.
From this I waisted some more time coming up with a few stats. Here they are:
- Eight stories written
- Fifteen rejections
- Most rejections for one story, six
- Three stories published
- one story paid
- Two contest results, 7th place both times
- Contests entered, six
- Decisions currently pending on submissions, four
I'm not sure how I feel about these stats. There is one sense that I'm not doing to bad as a beginning writer, there is some success there. But I look at the numbers and think that in two or so years I should have done more. But maybe not.
I like the fact that I have four stories out there being considered. This is the most I've had at any one time as I usually struggle to submit more than one story at a time.
If anyone has any thoughts on these stats, please leave a comment, I would love to know.
