I am thinking I should keep a record of how many papers are accepted versus how many rejected.
So, in answers from last month:
6 poems submitted, 2 accepted, 4 rejected
5 papers (as opposed to presentations) submitted, 2 accepted, 2 rejected, 1 pending
I have tried to be very careful in placing my work where it is most likely to get accepted. Even with that, my acceptance rate is a 2:3 ratio.
