When I can beat Grad school back with a stick, I work on my writing. So far, I have had three short stories in a small fan magazine, one story in an anthology, I'm currently editing an anthology (which will likely have two of my own stories in it), and I have a published novella. All of these have been paying gigs through an actual small-business publisher, all selling hard copy. The drawback is that these are all in a small niche subculture that doesn't pay much attention to the writing, where most book purchases are done at conventions. It's so small, if you've sold a hundred copies of a book in the first year, you're a smash hit. My novel has only sold around 61+ copies since October. You'll notice I haven't linked to the book, because the topic is kinda weird so I don't want to get "those" looks. Anyways. I want to break out of this little subculture and hit the actual mainstream. Which is scary and intimidating. Also the whole undertaking of writing a Novel is scary and overwhelming with the work and consideration. I have terrible discipline/routine problems. Oh. I'm Rechan by the way.
