2010: The Year in Writing

Iiiiiiiiiit's roundup time! Here are the stats for 2010:

(Numbers do not include free short stories "Not Quite Casper" and "Twice Shy" or the still-unfinished 1794)

Short stories written: 7
Short stories sold: 4
Short story submissions: 23 (includes 4 active and 3 that are probably no-reply-means-no)
Short story rejections (including revoked submissions): 12
Short stories published: 5 (6 if you count the second publication of "White Knight, Black Horse")
Total short story word count (final drafts written 2010): approximately 19950

My short story word count is way down from 2009, but then, I was employed full-time for all of 2010 and I wasn't for 2009. In drafts I have over 25,000 words on 1794 (which has been submitted and revised several times), and 14,600 words on the new novel. Plus I revised the old novel (again!) in 2010, before finally putting that one to bed. So all in all, not a bad year, but I'm hoping to do better in 2011.
