Write 1/Sub 1 check in: week 41 the one with a new goal

Week 41! This week I made my 78th story submission. I thought to myself, hmm, maybe I could make that an even 100 by the end of the year. Maybe I could. As I mentioned on Facebook, my battle cry is now:

Bring on the rejections!

Because, really, getting rejected does, in its own weird way, make that much easier. Also, I have a backlog of stories that I need to revise and send out. True, I have a few crazy ones (like the one I wrote this week) that probably won’t go anywhere. Still, I should at least test the waters with most of them.

My write 1 this week was crazy, so I put that word right in the title. Honestly, it has the feel of an accidental novel, one that needs historical research. So. Yeah. Not that I’m against 1) novels, 2) research, but I’m not sure I have the endurance for either at the moment. Still, it was fun to play in this particular world, and I will no doubt revisit it at some time.
