Sorry, I have been AWOL for a while, and will be again. As of tomorrow, I am off to the southwest to help/pester Mrs. Axe for a few weeks. But I wanted to revisit these real quick. It's been an up/down month, so let's see:
– Finish my revisions on Pilgrimage and get to Mrs. Axe and two more beta readers.
Check. I actually got it to Mrs. Axe and three beta readers. Minimal feedback so far, for better or worse.
– Write two short stories.
Fail. I finished one good one but nothing else.
– Submit five times.
Check. Made five exact submissions, as I posted the other day, I did have one sale.
– Get ten reviews done for Critters.
Partial success. I got nine done and got my ratio to a point I don't have to worry about it while I was gone. Still, I just ran out of steam before I got to ten, and I have done some other off-line reviews for people.
Okay, so not a great month but not terrible either. Lots more work remains.
