OK, so I’ve given you my mid-year stats, but how about career?
Recently, I reached the milestone of my 50th submission, so I thought I’d share some more stats.
Submission 1. Writers of the Future contest. March 20, 2010. Result – Honorable Mention. (Still a rejection, but a nice one.)
Submission 15. March 5, 2012. A flash fiction story sent to Fiction365. My first acceptance!
Submission 50. Sept 6, 2013. IGMS. Oddly enough, a rework/rewrite of my first submission.
So, right now I’m at a 12% acceptance rate. (Assuming the pending 5 are rejected.) Pretty good, I’d say!
Here’s to the next 50, may they not take 3.5 years to happen…
