writing: February 2008 review

Summary:
- 3 stories written to first draft
- 3 stories revised
- 6 stories critiqued
- 1 story went out for critique
- 2 stories submitted to publications
- 1 story received an Honorable Mention in Writers of the Future
- Wrote 14K new words, received 7.5K words of revision credit



I wrote first drafts of three stories:
- "Cleaning Out The House" (1634 words; critiqued by deathless_pose)
- "The Dybbuk's Moll" (7200 words; early parts critiqued by SacSpecFic)
- "The Straw That Shines Like The Sun" (2100 words; critiqued by deathless_pose

I revised three stories:
- "Old Town, Old Man, New Man, New Town"
- "Samsara"
- "Cat, Owl, Cigarette"

Six stories received critiques:
- "Fly Boy" was critiqued by Critters
- "The Dybbuk's Moll" (partial) was critiqued by SacSpecFic
- The untitled ticked-off moon worker story (unfinished), "Cleaning Out The House", "The Straw That Shines Like The Sun", "While Visiting the Ladies Room Exhibit at the Human Museum" all were critiqued by deathless_pose

One story was submitted for critique:
- "Old Town, Old Man, New Man, New Town" was submitted to Critters queue

Two stories were submitted for publication:
- "Apologies All Around"
- "Cat, Owl, Cigarette"

Finally, "This Moment, and the Times Before" received an Honorable Mention in WOTF for 2008 Q1.

I wrote 14,054 new words, and received 7,464 words credit for revision.



All in all, a pretty solid month and the WOTF Honorable Mention was pretty spiffy. I think I hit most of my monthly goals from the beginning of the year except maybe for new words (wanted to average 500/day).

Next month it's major revisions and submissions, so the new words will probably decrease. But I should have a lot more stories out in the world by the end of March and that will be cool!

ETA: Added in the critiques for the deathless_pose stories.
