I just got the word that is going to buy my story "Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer" for Clockwork Phoenix 4. Very happy. This is my second sale to Mike; my story "Lineage" appeared in Clockwork Phoenix 3 in 2010.
My 2012 report looks like this:
- 52 submissions of 14 different pieces (including poems and reprints).
- 5 sales (including 2 reprints)
- 5 stories appeared in print, online or podcast (including 1 reprint).
I won't bother reporting on my words written or drafts completed in 2012, because it's a depressingly empty list. The best I can do is to call it a "fallow" year, due to numerous personal and professional obligations that intervened. Very little in the way of new writing or revising. The good news is that I'm in the middle of a new first draft right now, and it looks like I may actually finish it!
