In which there is counting

It's the end of the year, almost. I shouldn't be writing this post, because there are a few things still to come in before the real year-end, but I find myself at the computer just now with an urge to do it, and I can always update you guys again later, right?

EDIT: within 24 hours of the original version of this post, I received both a rejection and an acceptance, which are now included in the data below!

Number of new stories published: 1

Most rejected story: 6 and counting
