Quick Stats – 2010 vs. 2011 submissions

Uncategorized

I thought it’d be interesting to look at some rough numbers, based on my Duotrope stats, year over year.

2010

13 submissions to 10 different markets

4 stories on submission

13 rejections, 5 personal (38%)

10 markets

0 acceptances

2011

43 submissions to 36 different markets

11 stories on submission

39 rejections, 16 personal (41%)

4 acceptances

Misc. Stats

Each year saw one story pulled from circulation after one submission (one was a reprint from 2008)

All four sales this year were made on the first submission (one by invitation)

It’s clearly a positive trend, and one I hope to continue into 2012. I don’t make resolutions, but I do set goals. This year, I’ll be finishing the novel I started last November and writing (and more importantly, finishing) a lot more short stories.
