April has been a good month for my writing: high productivity, a story sale, a story publication and an acceptance to a workshop that I really wanted to get into. On the other hand, my submission numbers took a dive. For the most part, the stories I have out on submission have been at their respective markets for several weeks or months. I just haven't been getting a lot of responses lately. On the month's word count: 4,000 words are a short story, and the rest of it is an outline for my urban fantasy novel and writing the first three chapters.
