Monthly Stats for July

Here are my monthly stats for July.

  • 24,000 new words of fiction written this month. 1



  • 30,000 words of workshop critique written this month 2
  • 19 first drafts currently in progress (some untouched for a long time)
  • 3 first drafts currently "ripening" before second draft.
  • 2 second drafts currently in progress
  • 0 second draft currently in the hands of "trusted readers."
  • 4 third drafts currently in progress.
  • 0 third drafts currently awaiting polishing.
  • 0 fourth drafts in currently in progress.
  • 1 rewrite (at request of editor) currently in progress.
  • 8 stories currently submitted to markets
  • 1,400 words in shortest story currently submitted.
  • 8,700 words in longest story currently submitted.
  • 0 offers of publication received this month.
  • Longest current wait without response: 437 days.

1 Biggest month yet. Of course it’s all due to the one-story-per-week pace of the Clarion Workshop.

2 So, if you add the new fiction writing to the critique writing, I’ve actually produced 54,000 words this month — excluding all of the in-class fiction writing exercises, of course.
