Story counts - 2010-05-27

Some stats on my short stories:

Written: 337 stories; total 640,000 words
Published: 136 stories; total 192,000 words

Some percent of the stories are either too old to submit, or stuck in my "need work" limbo. Others just don't fit in with any market I can find, or have just been bouncing around for years with no luck. Okay, it's not like I send them out every week. Some have only been submitted two or three times, they just aren't high priorities.
