Fifty-three

I finished and submitted my fifty-third short story of the year this evening. This one's a 4,600-word confession I started writing February 1, 2009. Until I picked it up again a few weeks ago, all I had written was the opening scene.

Fifty

I completed and submitted my fiftieth short story of the year a few minutes ago. This one's a 10,000-word private eye story, the longest non-novel story I've completed since I began tracking word counts in 2009.

This one was written by invitation, but I have concerns about it. While I'm confident I've written a good story, I think it's a little left of the bull's eye upon rereading the submission guidelines. Luckily, there's time to write a new story if necessary.

So, fingers crossed and all that.
