Six Word Saturday

Every Writer’s Gotta Keep Track, Right?

Manuscript submission tracking and management is key  to avoiding both embarrassment and the wrath of busy publishers / editors.  I’ve used  Duotrope for years to keep myself on track.  Their database is huge; their listings are always current and are promptly updated, and their (annual) user/member fees are very reasonable, given the extensive use I make of the system.

As the year’s first-quarter comes to a close, I’m pretty satisfied with how things are shaping up for 2016.  I finished out last year with an acceptance rate of just over 22%,  and I’d be happy to maintain that average again this year. We’ll see, I guess.  Here’s the skinny so far:

Disappearance–Front Porch Review–January Issue
Hard Going–Poetry Breakfast–3/22
Critique–Red Wolf Journal–3/23
Metamorphosis–Red Wolf Journal–3/25
