Writing History

I was prompted (after reading a recent post by Brad Torgersen that brought me to an older post by Jay Lake where he discussed his publication history and how he has amassed over a thousand rejections) to put some of my own stats up here.

  • 284 Rejections before first small press sale
  • 397 Rejections before first semi-pro
  • 505 Rejections before first pro
  • 592 total subs with twenty or so stories out at market now

By the end of 2010 I will have had twelve stories published in total, not counting reprints and such.
