Are the ratios somewhat balanced or do rejections outnumber the acceptances? Lately, I've been submitting a mix of poetry and short stories and I've been rejected left and right with only an acceptance every two months or so. I've managed to get two short stories published but I've written about seven short stories altogether. I guess the waiting has me bummed. How many publications do you get each month? And how much do you aim to have by the end of the year?
