2021 Year in Review … in review

Way, way back on December 24th, I wrote my 2021 Awards Eligibility and Year in Review post, assuming that the year was, well, over. What a difference a week makes. Since I wrote that post, I’ve had four more acceptances and two more publications.

That means I already have 19 stories lined up for publication in 2022, and the year hasn’t even started yet.

Of course, it’s all a numbers game. According to Duotrope, where I track my submissions …

Of those 350 submissions, 53 of them are still pending, plus a few more that aren’t listed in Duotrope.

For 2022, my goal is to break into a few of the super competitive publications, such as The Dark, Black Static, Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Apex Magazine, Clarkesworld, Metaphorosis, Nightmare, Uncharted, and Bourbon Penn.
