I received a contract today, for a confession I submitted January 16. This is only my second sale of the year, so I'm five sales behind schedule. Although I'm a bit dismayed that I'm behind schedule, I'm not surprised. I wrote and submitted very little between early September and Christmas, and it will probably take several months of high productivity to overcome a 3.5-month gap in productivity.

Is the economy having any obvious effect yet on your sales?

As far as I can determine, the current economy is having no impact on sales.

That is good news, Michael. Can't say the same for me as several markets I have written for in the past have quit accepting new work for the time being. At least they are still in business.

Another market, this one a paying review market called AFTERTHOUGHTS has shut down as of the first of this month. The rights to my work have reverted back to me, but, it is still an income loss.
