* - Partial year stats for 2002.
(1) Wins includes Sales, Prizes, Honorable Mentions,
WOTF Quarter/Semi/Finalists even without publication,
plus Encouraging Letters from Editors which just cannot
be considered the same as a straight rejection.
(2) No Calls include Contests canceled, Publications
gone under, Manuscripts lost by the USPS, and Manuscripts
withdrawn after Way Too Much Time (usually associated
with Publications gone under).
(3) New Stories is only for stories shipped, does not
include all 2004 Clarion workshop stories or chapbook
stories sent to friends and family.
(4) New Markets are those first-time submissions for
Dr. Phil, not necessarily a new market in the industry.
(5) Honorables include Honorable and Laudable Mentions
which do not win a cash prize, but may be eligible for
print or web publication.
(6) Other Publ. include short stories placed on blog

"A Rosebourne Christmas" for Christmas 2006.

I just made my "annual 7 still out by the end of the year" by submitting 3 stories on 30-31 December 2006 – entry for WOTF and e-subs to two small markets. Did not check e-mail during New Year’s Eve, just in case the one editor did a less-than-24-hour turnaround. (grin)

This has been a very good year in some respects for my writing.

Dr. Phil
