What Have I Completed This Year?

Writing and editing-wise, I think I have done a lot. Sometimes, looking back and taking stock is exactly what a freelancer needs to do to see just how much they have accomplished in a single year.

Anthologies (3)
• Close Encounters of the Urban Kind – Released April 2010
• Beauty Has Her Way – Released December 2010
• Human Tales – Turned in

Solo Works (5)
• Dice & Deadlines – Monthly column
• Shanghai Vampocalypse – Released September 2010 (RPG)
• Covert Ops – Turned in (RPG)

• A Bite to Remember, The Zombie Feed - Apex Publications, September 2010
• Honoring the Dead, Night-Mantled: The Best of Wily Writers, Volume 1 anthology - Wily Writers, December 2010

Not bad for one year, eh? This doesn't include all of the stuff I've contracted but not yet finished. When I look back on it, I am pretty damn pleased with myself. Here are some more metrics:

• Stories submitted: 27 (goal: 15) = 10 acceptances, 13 rejections, 4 unknown.
• New stories written: 10 (goal: 12)
• RPG projects: 7 (goal: 6)
• Books read: 50 (goal: 50)

You know what's funny? I can't tell if I'm missing anything.

You left off your essay or was that because it wasn't fiction?

Hey, just want to make sure you get all the credit you're due! (I think you even forgot to announce the sale back when we were all told)
