As 2017 comes to an end, I’ve been taking account of my writing over the year. As it stands, I submitted stories 64 times over the year, which is less than last year. I’ve had two acceptances so far in 2017: one was a reprint, podcasted at The Overcast; the other was my second appearance in the pages of Nature. In all likelihood, these may be the only acceptances I’ll see this year.
However, I have resolved to not be too hard on myself on the lack of acceptances (or writing overall) this year. A death in the family, wedding plans, and welcoming my family into our house because of Hurricane Maria have all been necessary disruptions.
I do have several things to look forward to in 2018: I was accepted for the Futurescapes workshop, held in April, I will be attending the Nebulas Conference in May, and I will be attending Capclave again. As things have normalized, I have found time to write in short bursts, again.
