If you submit stories, you get rejected. That’s life. I counted how many rejection emails I received between the two latest acceptances of a story. There were eight rejection emails in my inbox, but it might very well be that I deleted one or two out of frustration.
This means that my acceptance rate is approximately 1 in 10.
I have no idea if that’s good or not. I don’t even know by what scale one would measure that. But I thought that on a blog dedicated to my “literary success” I should also show what it takes to get a single story accepted for publication. And that’s to get a lot more stories rejected.
Today, I got three good news about my writing efforts. I’ll share them one by one, as they become more concrete.
Here is the first one:
My flash fiction “Spring In Decay” just won third place in the Shady Grove Literary Competition! Head over and check it out.
Woohoo, I put up my online publications. The stories are all super short, so head over and check them out.
I’m not sure what the rules are regarding the stories that I’ve actually sold, so I guess I’ll wait until I’m holding an author’s copy in my hands and list them then.
I started writing very short stories in May 2018 and at this point, I’ve sold four of them and had some others published online. I decided to create a website in order to collect links to my fiction publications. So here we are.
This is a work-in-progress, so nothing is done yet.
