Writing Summary 2020

This year has been my best so far for short story sales, and I’ve hit a few significant ‘level ups’, including adding several new markets to my repertoire. So here is my progress report.

List of acceptances/publications:

7 stories published, 8 accepted, 10 new written (2 of which sold), 7 novel chapters drafted, 48,612 new words(ish) written, plus editing. I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope – hooope – it’s a better one for us all. Take care all. 💙💜💙
