It’s seriously crunch time here on the submission front. ABNA comes out today. Some markets have promised to render a decision before the end of the month, and Duotrope is starting to show responses from three of them. I find myself synching the email more often, refreshing the feeds more often, and in general being distracted from my task of writing.
On the positive side, I have flensed about 3k from DOV, and might actually have a home for the excised material. Nothing quite as joyous as finding a market for something you’d ordinarily be throwing out.
