2018 Writing Recap

In 2018 I met my goals of finishing a novel draft and doing writing-related work every day; 500 words minimum most days, with flexibility to count editing, market research, or submitting a story instead as needed.

I submitted a partial novel draft to a publisher for consideration, which was a great feeling.

I submitted a lot of short stories to a lot of places, had some great discussions with editors, and sold two stories, to the Hidden Animals and Strange Economics anthologies.

I earned $110.37 from my writing in 2018.

On to 2019!
