June Stats

Posted on: July 1st, 2009 by Anthony Rapino 5 Comments

Inspired by the ever-glorious, intrepid writer Catherine J Gardner, of The Poisoned Apple, I have decided to post my writing stats for the month. I’m afraid I can’t be as accurate as Catherine in terms of word counts, but I’ll try to make up for it.

Sales: 0, the old goose egg.
Query submissions: 4
Story/review submissions: 1
Rejections: 2
Maimed bystanders: 3 1/2
Dead: Only my ego
Confrontations with other drunken writers: 1. But calling him a writer is generous.
Confrontations with rabid animals: 1. Raccoons should not be placated.
Useless Critiques: None. I have the best crit group in the world.

So, there you have it, my monthly stats for the Juneyith June ever. Seriously. If there was a contest for the most June-like June of all, it’d be June of 2009. Only challenged by June of 1986, which as we all know had an abundance of Juneyosity rivaled by few other Junes. There was just something in the air that year.

Have you had a grammar inflicted seizure yet? Oh, don’t worry. Continue to read this blog, and you will.

    Totally insane.

    Dead: Only my ego (I love it!!!)

    You were braver than me, I gave up listing my rejection stats a few months ago. They were bringing me down. 🙂

    Thanks. I've always considered insanity a admirable trait.

    You know, right before posting here I received a rejection for one of my four queries that are currently out. Luckily that won't have to be added to the June stats though. 🙂

    Stats post are strangely interesting. Of course, all stats posts beat my own stats posts if I did them.
