2008 – Wrap Up

I only finished one story this year, what with moving, Dragon Age and a second child I found little time for writing. I’m taking a lot of time off in 2009 so I’m going to see if I can increase my productivity back to what it was in 2007.

In 2008, I:

  • Sold and saw in print: ‘A Ragman’s Vow’ (On Spec, Summer 2008)
  • Added ‘The End of the Road’ to  AnthologyBuilder (originally published in Not One Of Us)
  • Sold “From the Sea” to On Spec (perhaps for publication in 2009)?
  • A couple stories being held for additional consideration, fingers crossed!

Plus for kicks, my abridged writing history (skipped the middle years), as generated by my writing organizer YourOtherMind.
