I've been reading Ploughshares' articles on rejection.  (Full disclosure:  I've been rejected by them this reading cycle.  And, I don't have the $3 necessary to submit again.)  I was going to post them, as a reminder of the process and the need to keep submitting.   Then I...

Alls been quiet, but not innactive. Two more rejections for fiction, one for the agent.  The search goes on.  I am posting regularly to my FB page, in regards to this and will cease the "stats and facts" posts to the Red Room.  More importantly Tiene Su Se is at its first reader....

Another rejection, this time from an agent in the 11-20. Pueblo Revolt sent out this morning, twice (electronic sub and USPS). One of my agents, in the 11-20, accepts submissions today.  I'll get that out now. Will be working on submissions for the next two weeks (how many of the top ranked...

This week:  three rejections from agents, one from a top ten, two from the 11-20. As I wrote last, I will be changing this blog, moving on.  I will continue to post stats and facts as they arrive.  But then I'm shifting my focus to new work, trying to integrate this process with my...

I'm still working on a new writing schedule.  My mornings are reserved for the novel, and my late morning is for developing my new project (tba).  I devote afternoon writing to submissions (three off today) and obsessions.  As I wrote, yesterday, I'm losing the thread--I don't even...

I planned to write a grand statement about my next step, having little to no news or movement during the last few weeks of my search—not including work going out, just no answers coming in. The last two days I've been deeply unhappy—largely due to this process, but also a consequence of the place I...

"Criticism was expected to monitor year by year, perhaps even month by month, Russian progress in producing timeless materpieces.  Russian literature, focused on its 'thick journals.' became a periodical quest for cultural immortality."  from Gary Saul Morson's Introductory Study to A...

Last Week's Stats:  Query letters off to agents 11-20.  One sent back a response already (not the right fit).  Received 2 rejections from journals and resent work to both of them.   I am still feeling very attached to the last chapter (Pueblo Revolt), have sent it off to several...

I've been working. For nearly two weeks I've had no news from any source.  This week brought 3 rejections.  I am happy for the movement.  I just put together two submissions, right back out to two of the rejections, keeping it all in motion.  I was putting stamps on my SASEs and...
