April 2012: The Month in Review

 I have 31 original stories out right now.  One of them is by invitation, and three of them are shortlisted.  My wait times range from 3-185 days.  I finished and submitted three new stories.  

I’m leaving for Peru on Friday, and I won’t be doing much writing or any submitting while I’m there.  But I think the trip will be inspiring, and I expect to come back with a bunch of new story ideas.  I’m hoping to get responses to most of my submissions while I’m gone and start with a clean slate when I get back.  

I received one acceptance this month, and had four stories published.  I also got a share of the advance for the Spanish language edition of The Living Dead 2, so apparently that will be happening.  

I finished my screenwriting class.  I learned a lot, and it was fun.  I have both May and June’s One Revolution stories ready to post.  I need to start working on the two for July.  

I sent Left-Hand Gods to Angry Robot Books.  

I also turned 28, and I went to Cleveland to see William Shatner’s touring show.  I actually got to talk to him and kiss him on the cheek.  There’s photographic evidence, and I got a signed poster.
