May is short story month for me for those of you just tuning in. In an effort to keep myself motivated, I'm reporting my daily progress.
Day 11: Um. No.
Day 12: Received two rejections on a couple shorts in my juggling routine. Spent some time researching new markets. While on one publication website I found a link to a new submission tracking site. Huge yay! Then I found some new places to send work to and submitted four stories. Oh yeah...writing. Not so much, but least this was the productive kind of distraction.
Day 13: Devolution wraps up at 6,000 words. Just in time, because here are some fun prompts this week that I want to try.
Day 14: A migraine morning. Monitor brightness turned down low. Using the write for a market spec prompt. One new 1,800 word short completed. Hooray!
Day 15: Migraine still here. Blarg. Character prompt effort today. Got 1,000 words in before work took over.
Current monthly effort summary:
4 new shorts
2 shorts revised
1 new short in progress
