About this author

In addition to books, I've sold stories to periodicals such as Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine; Tales of the Talisman; Space Westerns; Golden Visions; and Sorcerous Signals. Over 90 total short story sales as of June 2011.

I've sold articles to publications such as Wild West; Territorial Magazine; Working Writer; and Model Railroader. I've place first once in the annual historical essay contest held by the Butler County Historical Society, tied for first once, come in second place four times, and come in third once. I have around 120 article sales as of June 2011.

All of these help to make certain that, if I get blocked on one project, I have something else to work on. I've had this routine for years, so that helps keep writer's block away. The more you get into the habit of writing, the more you tend to stick to writing, and the less of a chance there is of you getting blocked.(less)

Here's the seventh "writing stats" post of the year, letting you know how my writing output is progressing.



July was pretty steady, once I got back from SoonerCon. I wrote 115 pages this month. That is way down from what I could have written, if I'd stuck to my goals, which would have been 200 pages.
