[writing] June 2008 Summary; July 2008 Plans

June Summary
- 3 stories finished (plan was 2-3)
- 2 stories started (plan was 1)
- 5 stories revised (plan was 4)
- 2 stories were critiqued (plan was 2)
- 2 stories were sent out for critique (plan was 2)
- 5 critiques were done by me (plan was 8)
- 11 submissions were made, 6 stories joined the "out" pool (plan was 5 subs with 5 new stories)
- 3 submission results, all "no" (no plan here)
- 8106 new words; 5803 words revision credit
- Race Points: 14

Overall, the month was above plan on everything except the number of critiques I did. That was mainly because I didn't keep up with the Critters plan of 1/week. But the month can be considered a success, even if a bunch of the submissions were at the end of the month and even if the actual word output was lower than other months. But hey, if it works, it works.


Details
- I finished 3 stories: "And in the Deep Dark There Was A Bright Light"; "Underneath the Skin, the Flesh Was Weak"; "Robot in Furs"
- I started 2 stories: ""And in the Deep Dark There Was A Bright Light"; "Underneath the Skin, the Flesh Was Weak"
- I revised five stories: "The Presidential Book of the Dead"; "The Very Difficult Diwali of Sub-Inspector Thirumala Naidu"; "Crow and Samoset (or, Now and Then)"; "Cat, Owl, Cigarette"; "Visiting the Ladies Room Exhibit at the Human Museum"
- Two stories were critiqued: "Old Town, Old Man, New Man, New Town" (by Critters); "The Presidential Book of the Dead" (by SacSpecFic)
- Two stories were sent out for critique: "The Presidential Book of the Dead"; "Breaking Through"
- I did five critiques: 2 for Critters, 3 for SacSpecFic
- I did 11 submissions, 6 of them new stories being sent out into the world. No details given here.
- I received three submissions results, all "no", from Polyphony 7, Weird Tales and Realms of Fantasy
- I wrote 8106 new words and received 5803 words of revision credit.
- Race Points on June 30: 14 (14 stories out)


July Plans
- Finish 4 stories
- Start 4 stories
- Revise 4 stories
- Send 2 stories out for critique
- Critique 10 stories (7 for Critters, 3 for SacSpecFic)
- Submit 8 stories
- Race Points: more than 20 by end of month

The biggest change is that I'll be going to "a story a week" for the next two months. I think this can play out, but it will take more time. I want to submit all the stories written in July, plus get 4 more stories out. July will be busy, in a good way.
