I had hopes of writing another science fiction novel this year, but I never got past the outline. A green check-mark can be placed by my other goals for the year. I did manage to publish a few more blog posts, and I definitely wrote at least a short story every month.
Eighteen short stories were added to my list of publications this year, a little over thirty thousand words. It thrills me greatly that I sold my first story as a podcast this year to Manawalker Studios. 600 Second Saga has published many of my short stories, but Manawalker Studios was my first audio sale.
Seven of my stories this year were included in anthologies and magazines. In the coming year, I’m going to focus more of my submissions to markets that include a print publication.
I mentioned self-publishing an anthology in an earlier blog-post, and I’ve sent a small collection of stories to a few trusted readers for feedback. Hopefully, I’ll have more to say about this soon.
It has been a great year, full of opportunities, and I expect that 2019 will be no different.
