2012 was, without a single doubt, my very best year in writing so far. I had 30 stories published. I created a sucessful Kickstarter project, which I’ve completed ahead of schedule. I sold at least one story every month. I took a few really excellent classes, and my work has received some positive reviews. I had a few editors request stories from me, and I sold two stories to invitation-only anthologies. I joined SFWA.
I was accepted into the Creative Writing MFA progam at Chatham University, but I couldn’t afford to attend. I’m trying again in 2013 and hoping for a fellowship or assistantship. I sent out 275 story submissions in the past 12 months, and my acceptance ratio is 10.4%.
