Definitely not an android.

Thought it might be a good idea for me to start my own writing-accountability thread to brain dump all the stuff kicking around inside my skull. Smiley

I used to do some casual creative writing back in my early 20's, but haven't done much since until trying out NaNoWriMo in 2010. I started writing short stories in March (only did novels before then), and just began getting into the submissions/rejection fun back in June/July. I've had a couple drabbles featured on the Drabblecast since then, and my current goal is to make my first sale.

Right now, I've got two pieces making their rounds in the wider world. One, my revised Thanksgiving piece from the PC Flash Fiction contest. Two, a SF short story sent to Andromeda Spaceways, where it's been parked for two months.

I've got three more pieces going through revisions, but will probably have to put them on hold until after NaNoWriMo. With any luck, I'll have a few more short stories that don't entirely suck at the end of November as well. It would be nice to have a full stable of stories polished and ready to send around. I've noticed that rejection's a lot more fun if you have at least two stories out, so that you can just shrug and start watching the next one in line! Smiley
