Overview of my 2021 Writing Accomplishments

I don’t usually put together year-end wrap-ups, but I felt inspired last week, and wanted to recap what I’ve done, mostly for goal-setting/ objectives “missed-or-met” purposes, but partly, also, just to have everything listed in one place instead of several dozen separate social media posts!

In the year of 2021, this is what I did (related to writing!):

OVERVIEW

• I wrote and had published seven original short stories
• I wrote and had published four reprint short stories
• I edited and had published four volumes in the series, Haunted Library of Horror Classics (through SourceBooks)
• I edited and published through my press (Dark Moon Books) one Primer book for Ramsey Campbell (part of the Exploring Dark Short Fiction series)
• I edited and published through my press (Dark Moon Books) one themed anthology

(Plus a number of blurbs, reviews, introductions, etc. I didn’t particularly track)
