IWSG - No Bites

It's time for the February Insecure Writer's Support Group, created by Alex J. Cavanaugh!

Anyone is welcome to join. Simply click on Alex's name above and sign up, post, and visit your fellow insecure writers.

Our co-hosts this month are Raimey Gallant, Natalie Aguirre, CV Grehan, and Michelle Wallace!

The optional question is: Besides writing, what other creative outlets do you have?

I love photography, so that's my other main creative outlet. Unfortunately, I haven't played with it much in the last year or two, but I want to get back to it. My husband gifted me some new lenses to play with for Christmas, and I haven't done so yet. I'm looking forward to it!

I didn't place any short stories in January, so have zero sales for the new year. Boo! However, I have quite a few releases coming out over the next couple months. The publishing world is funny that way. I either have a rash of acceptances coming in or a rash of publications.

Speaking of which, the anthology Twice-Told: A Collection of Doubles came out this past weekend, and includes my Story "Stuck With Me." It's an odd little story about Siamese twins.

Now for a summary of my stats for the month of January. It's pretty dismal.

13 submissions
10 rejections
0 acceptances
10 stories currently on submission

What do your stats for the month look like? What are your insecurities? What other creative outlets do you have?

May you find your Muse.
