I made my #10bythen goal for October, meaning that I sent at least 10 stories to publishers this month. I continue to find this a helpful goal in keeping myself motivated to send work out, and not get stuck in endless polishing.
The 10 places I sent stories in October are: A Glitch in the Continuum; Cabinet des Fees; Twisted Fairy Tales v. 2; Gone with the Dirt: Undead Dixie; The Zombie Feed Anthology; The Red Penny Papers; Their Dark Masters; Howl: Echoes of the Hunt; Shadows & Light v. 2; and Wily Writers Speculative Fiction.
Of this group of 10, 1 was accepted; 3 have been rejected; 1 project was cancelled; and 5 are still pending. I also still have 7 stories pending from prior months.
Wish me luck! 🙂
