Progress Report, in which I am reminded of my math skills

One novel crit done, one to go.  In between, I’m taking a bit of time to read some Hugo- and Nebula-eligible works.  I usually don’t have such a window at this time of year, so I thought I’d take advantage of it.

Got taxes done over the weekend, too–and was surprised to learn I had made more money on fiction sales than I had thought.  I actually did better than 2008, even though I made fewer sales in 2009.  The explanation is simple:  I didn’t get paid for most of those 2008 sales until 2009.  Duh.  No one will ever mistake me for a math genius.

Even so, I still I haven’t turned a profit.  Expenses will do that to you.  But I made my best run to date at getting in the black.  That’s something, I guess.

More reading ahead.  Suppose I should get to it.
