September wasn’t a great writing month. I didn’t finish a single story. I had one story published, and I sold one story. I have one novel and just over 30 stories submitted, and a handful that I need to send back out. Two of my submissions are shortlisted. My longest wait time is up to 341 days.
I felt strange all month–not depressed, exactly, but I couldn’t focus on writing, and all of the rejections got to me a little more than usual. I need to remember that even my worst month in 2012 was better than my best month in 2011. I’m still moving forward, even if it’s not as quickly as I want.
I’m hoping October will be better. In fact, I know it will because I have already got two stories almost ready to type up. I’m hoping to finish my remaining One Revolution stories so I can get the book printed before the end of the year.
