So I discovered on Twitter that a great way to keep yourself motivated to get work out is to try to send out at least 10 pieces per month – the #10bythen. I stopped and checked to see if I sent 10 in August. Crossed Genres and Daily Bites of Flesh 2011 were both sent in August, and the following eight markets are still reviewing my pieces: Bewere the Night, Enchanted Conversation, Faerie Stories, Greek Myths Revisited, New Love Stories Magazine, On the Premises, Poe Little Thing, and Steam Dreams Punk Baby, so I made the 10!
For September (which is officially half over as of today – eek!), I’ve got Cthulhurotica (sent 9/5), and the following three are still with the publisher for review: Horror Library, Steamy Screams, and Full Armor.
So, I’m a little behind to do 10 by the end of the month (needing 6 more!), but inspired to keep up the pace!
