Submissions-wise, 2014 was an amazing year for me. I sent out more submissions than any other year, and I had more acceptances this year than in the last 4 years combined.
46500 words written
I don't track daily wordcounts, so to get words written I added up the wordcounts for all my completed drafts. This includes a couple of co-written stories (and yes, I claimed all the words even though my co-author wrote some), but doesn't include stories that I started but did not finish. It also doesn't count words written on older versions of drafts (and I often write multiple drafts of a story starting over from scratch at the beginning). If I did daily tracking, I'd guess that the word count would be closer to 75k, but I'm more interested in finished words so that's what I track and what I posted.
10 new stories published
I talked about this in a previous post, so I won't go over the details here, but in addition to having more stories out than I've ever had in a single year, I also had stories in two new-to-me pro markets — Clarkesworld and Apex.
So what's next? 2015 is already looking promising. Because of all the acceptances this year, I already have 12 stories forthcoming. I think my main goal will be to write more words. 100k of finished drafts instead of 50k. I am hopeful that this is realistic — by the middle of 2015, my youngest daughter will be in preschool, which will free up more writing time for me.
