Stats Check

It's been an insane week or so and I'm now up to 8 stories accepted.

Acceptances: 8
Rejections: 26
Acceptance Rate: 23.5%

That is a crazy acceptance rate and I know it'll fall in the next month or so. Duotrope lists the average at 8.6%. If I can keep mine much above 12-14%, I'll be over the moon!

One reason for the high acceptance rate is that I've been cherrypicking old stories to send off. Once I'm in a routine of only subbing to anthologies or higher level magazines, it'll come tumbling. I'm very aware of that!
