I have a simple writing resolution this year: write and submit at least 12 stories. That's one a month. Should be doable. Frankly, should be exceedable. I enjoy Michael Bracken's ongoing tally of his story output. With a hat tip to him, I'd like to follow suit.
I have written and submitted my first story of the year. It's a 6,425-word yarn that I've sent to the editors of an anthology. It's the second adventure of my railroad detective, Calvin Carter and I got a big kick out of writing it. (If you're curious, the link to the first is there to the right.) I started the story sometime in December (I'll be sure to mark the start date next time) but I wrote most of it during the first week of January. I finished it a week ago and have been making edits (and having it read) ever since. Time for submission. I'll let everyone know if it gets accepted.
