I have fewer than ten active sendouts at the moment. But, to my dismay, I realize I actually don't have many other pieces to send at the moment. The good thing about this is that it indicates that I've had a few sales. The bad thing is that it indicates just how unproductive I've been over the past few months. Not idle never that. But unproductive. While there is a moral difference between the two, they result in the same thing: Laura languishes in obscurity.
This, then, is my very public pledge: by the end of September, I will COMPLETE at least the first drafts of three stories (emphasis on the COMPLETE), and I will do the world-building I promised myself I would do so that I could continue with the YA novel. I have spoken.
