I am an FM moderator

I moderate the Poetry board:

I moderate the June Dvorak challenge:

I hang out a lot on the Daily Word Count & Goals board:

I write

100 poems completed. Granted, I aim for 100 haiku every April in the challenge, so this may not really count.
At least 25 short stories completed. Actually about 40 short stories written, but it's still less than 50. For the moment. ;)
At least 25 stories sold. (I'm counting reviews sold to Vision here, too. Also, both sales of "Being Green." See below.)
(At least) 2 novels completed--though the word counts are somewhat lower than I was aiming for! Actually 4 novels completed--hope to move this up to the next pip this year!
Touching Time won the Moongypsy Press First Anniversary Writing Contest, which comes with publication
Currently at 382 rejections and climbing.

I learn and teach

I've given a sensory perception class twice, and taken classes from others. (Though I think Val regrets telling me blood could be used to seal an earthen floor.)

I led the October-November 2008 workshop.

I blog

I participate in challenges (not always successfully)

(I think; might be more)

There should be some story-a-day pips here, too, when I track down how many stories each year.

I work at publication

Touching Time won the Moongypsy Press First Anniversary Writing Contest, which comes with publication (probably in 2012)
Also, putting up some romances and steampunk for sale as e-books through Hartshorn Publishing.

Thank you!

Of course, now I realize I haven't updated my number of rejections, and I didn't put my new blog up there yet. And the boards that I moderate are pretty moribund . . . :blush:

Dear madam,
I am pleased to see the amount of progress, as illustrated in your web. This indicates you are versatile, as you touch several genres. Perhaps it is a good news for juniors to follow. Thanks and Good luck.
