Submission Scorecard



Here's the scorecard I use to summarize my writing submissions, in case you're wondering what it's like to be a writer...

1  Waiting for Acceptance/Rejection
1  Withdrawn
This is a listing of writings I've submitted. This doesn't include items like the "Five Sentence Fiction" or "Horror Bites" writing challenges - you'll just have to read the blog to find those! The order of submission is from newest (top) to oldest (bottom).

Submitted Works: A more detailed version of my submissions, along with information on potential future submissions, may be found as a Google Docs Spreadsheet by clicking here.

If a piece has been accepted and is available on the Internet (or in print), clicking on the Published link (or the links under the word "Published") will take you there. Please let me know if any of the links aren't working as some publishers of webzines often place older works in an archive, changing their address. If it says "accepted" but does not have a link, it is not yet publicly published.

Titles highlighted in green (for example, My Really Great Story) are for charity, usually part of an anthology.

Published Works: A more detailed version of my published works may be found as a Google Docs Spreadsheet by clicking here.

*2 Update: as of 9/12/2014, the Scarlett River website is no longer active

*3 This website no longer seems to have the original content - hacked, maybe?

*4 The anthology was finally published (my haiku was not included), but I never received a rejection or any other notice; the Dreamscape Press website has not been updated since Jan 2014, but there are a few Twitter posts. In fact, as of Jan 29, 2015, this anthology was still listed as open on their website.

*5 Penumbra stopped operations as of January 2015
