I finished and submitted my fortieth short story of the year this evening, a 3,800-word confession.

Last year I was not as productive as I strive to be, only producing forty short stories the entire year. With this story I have matched last year's total output, and I've exceeded last year's total word count by 500 words.

My goal each year is to receive 52 acceptances (an average of one each week), and most years I have to produce slightly more than 52 stories to achieve that goal. As August winds down, I seem to be on track with both production and sales.

That you do. Seems to me, baring unforeseen circumstances, you are well on schedule. Good deal.
