Writing Roundup for 2017

To be honest I’m a bit disappointed with my output this year, especially the second half. I’ve been busy with tour guiding and a lot of real life got in the way. Still and all, it’s not too bad.

  • LaPalma-island.com 96 posts (not all of them new)
  • SheilaCrosby.com 76 posts (not all of them new)
  • 11 short stories sent to the critique group
  • 7 short story submissions and 7 rejections (Sigh! But there are three stories still out with editors))
  • 47 short chapters of whodunnit 2nd draft (about 50,000 words)
  • 13 chapters (16,700 words) of whodunnit 3rd draft

Tomorrow I’ll plan the next year’s writing, at least in outline.

  1. That’s a lot more productive than my writing year! Well done of the novel chapters. Fingers crossed for the 3 stories out there. Resubmit the others. I won a comp on a story’s tenth outing! It was tweaked a bit to fit a smaller word count – maybe that’s what helped!
