I drafted an entire novel (DNP), as well, and gave a public reading of the opening pages. (Mini-competition; I didn’t win.)
For next year, if I want to publish shorter pieces, I need to write more of them. I only have four poems worth circulating, and one (1) short story under 2000 words, which seems to be a magic cut-off point. I also need to find homes for my 5000+ word stories, which don’t have many competition options.
On the other hand, the novel has to be my top priority!
