I wrote less actual words on Bloodmender’s outline, but I did make some big breakthroughs in putting together the actual arc for Sera. I know what her arc will be and how it will take her through the book, and I know how the book ends. I’m excited to write it!
This week, I had one story rejected and one story I’ve marked as never responded. I’m going to send out a few more stories next week.
This week’s progress:
- 2,087 words written on Bloodmender’s outline.
- Sera’s arc is finalized!
- I know how the book is going to end, which is a big relief. I’m excited about writing it now.
- After 250 days with no response (and ignored queries) I’ve marked the market I submitted “Twenty Floors Up” to as DNF. The story’s going in the drawer for now (over 15 rejections) though I may pull it out again some day.
- Received a rejection (as expected) from the large pro market to which I submitted “The Simworld Design Contest”, pretty much exactly where Duotrope said I would. So hooray for statistics being accurate!
