1) all the laundry in the house
2) a bit of reading and writing
3) make new (recycled) folders for submissions, rejections, acceptances in 2012
4) some tallying of s/r/a in 2011
Along with Brett Elizabeth Jenkins, aka The Angry Grammarian, I'll aim for 100 rejections this next year. Actually, her accounting starts on September 1, so I've tallied from there and will re-tally from January 1, 2012, as well, if I can handle it given my math challenge! I think I can, I think I can...
As of September 1, 2011, I've sent out 45 packets of something (11.25 per month, yes?), with 7 acceptances and 15 rejections. So about half of those are still out there.
Looking back to January 1, 2011, I sent out 111 packets of something (pre-100 rejection goal; only averaging 9.25 per month), with 45 rejections, 34 acceptances, and 32 still pending (including the 23 pending in the other tally).
Keep on chugging (up the hill) and breezing (down the hill) is advice from someone (over the hill). Someone who's cheering herself up on a Blue Monday, that Christmas-is-over kind of blue. But mostly I let myself feel that yesterday and distracted myself with numbers today.
