Well, we finally did it! After 10 months of writing and submitting, I have three sales under my belt. Whew!
As you’ll see below, those three acceptances are dwarfed by a sea of rejections. There were so many times in the past months that I was tempted to stop writing, and I’m certain I’ll feel that way again, but persistence is the name of the game. Here’s to hoping these numbers keep ticking in the right direction!
Days Writing: 310
Pieces Submitted: 35
Form Rejections: 87
Personal Rejections: 22
*For those of you counting, that’s just over a 2% success rate…not exactly a winning batting average, but I’ll take it! Encouraged to see the ratio of personals climbing up (a good chunk of those have come in the past month or two). Maybe I’m doing something right?
