When I went to write up this post, I opened my spreadsheet to check how many pitches I sent out for April and I was shocked.
All in the month in review
I was feeling a bit flat at the end of February. I hadn’t hit my monthly income target and even though I had potential for recurring income, clients were taking a while to get back to me and things were dragging. But three months into the year, I’m starting to recognise a pattern.
I sent out a lot of pitches in January (24 to be exact) and was waiting on quite a few responses from editors. But I didn't quite get the responses I was expecting.
I always love reading about how many pitches other writers send out each month, how many commissions and how many rejections. So here it is. My month laid bare.
