Just to keep myself honest here, I thought I’d post a quick update on my current crop of stories and where they are:
Death in a Tin Can -- submitted to Viable Paradise (workshop)
The Body and the Bomb -- submitted to Strange Horizons
Where Do They Bury the Survivors? -- finished, shopped around, waiting in the desk drawer for either a revision, a market that will take novella-length works from a new writer, or having sold enough other pieces to no longer be as much of a risk
Down Came a Blackbird (critter’d as Proud, working title was Dead Drunk) -- being refactored, lengthened
Midnight Train -- partial draft, somewhat stalled
The Detective and the Detective -- Notes/Outline stage
So! Six works in various stages of finish, a third of them currently on submission. Not great, but not terrible.
