I can’t believe it’s December 1st already.
Here’s a kind of journal update for myself as to what happened in November 2010.
Three short story sales: “Vessels of Clay, Flesh, and Stars” to In Situ (semipro anthology); “Pathological Curves” to Poe Little Thing (pro magazine); and one other to a semipro magazine for which I am still confirming whether details can be announced yet. It’s a story about faith and about a fairy tale, transposed to medieval Ethiopia. With a golem.
I sent nine short stories to markets during the month of November (one short of my #10bythen goal). One has sold (see In Situ above). Six are still pending at Pedestal; Nightfall Publications Horror/Paranormal anthology; America the Horrific anthology; Cabinet des Fees; Shock Totem; and Biopunk. And two have been rejected.
I have another five stories still pending from submission in prior months for a total of eleven stories still awaiting an outcome.
I have two stories in draft to hopefully submit within the first two weeks of December for anthologies with December due dates.
I also attended OryCon this month and very much enjoyed meeting writers and editors while I was there.
All in all, a good month!
