Sales: 21 (of which 2 were pro-pay)
Rejections: 148 (it's a typo, I'm sure)
Total Word Count 2009: 191,765 words approx, plus 50,500 words (rewriting Theatre)
I wrote 14 new flash stories and 17 new short stories. I rewrote Theatre of Curious Acts (currently out with a publisher), The Drawing of Dolls (needs more work) and The Poisoned Apple (retired), and I completed the first draft of Grim Glass Vein. My chapbook, The Sour Aftertaste of Olive Lemon, was released (and sold out), and it was fantastic (and scary) to have a very, very tiny book in print.
I wasn't overly impressed with my efforts in 2009, but I'm hoping to kick ass in 2010 - if I can get started, darn this flu.
My goals for 2010 are to make three pro-pay and eight semi-pro short fiction sales. I want to finish Grim Glass Vein, and to complete the first and second draft of my next book. I'm aiming for 15 new short stories and a novelette / novella. Plus, of course, there's all the usual agent/publisher/Jensen Ackles materialises in my room daydreams.
Happy New Year.
