I've been neglecting short stories a tad of late, what with novels and summer holidays and so forth. My outstanding submission count was down to something like five. Not good!
So I've been busily writing and polishing up half-completed tales and also submitting stories for reprint where possible. My outstanding submission count is now a shade below fifty. Much more healthy.
A couple of successes to report from this submission splurge already: Apocrypha and Abstractions have accepted a flash piece called Judgement Day (to appear next March) and German 'zine Pulpcore have bought German reprint rights to SF yarn Remembrance Day. I've only been published in English and Spanish before, so that's sehr gut indeed...
How many stories do you currently have on submission? Is fifty ridiculously high or should I aim for more?
