This is how I spent my writing year (words-on-page, not including revisions):
- 150k words on what would (or may, someday) be novels (including my WIP, which should be finished by the end of the month)
- 5k words on short stories & poems
- 3k non-fiction (journalism-ism)
- 20k blogging (assuming 250 words per post, includes family blog)
- 18k tweeting (assuming 5 characters per word, 130 characters per tweet...man, that adds up fast. That's like six chapters.)
I submitted work eleven times--six pieces of work in all--and had two accepted. That's 18% submit-to-sale, or 33% work-to-sale. My average wait time on those stories was 78 days.
My writing income for the year was $40. $15 of that went back to Duotrope.
My reading wasn't so hot--I think I read maybe fifteen novels, which sucks. That's all about time management. I'll do better.
Coming soon: 2010 writing goals.
