A break from the rain and hail today. Not much of one, but a break nonetheless.
Up early to the gym, then off to the office. Final revisions nearly in place on “Desperado.” So close to it now, can’t even hazard a guess as to whether it was worth the time. Will need to let it sit a while before passing judgment on it.
In other news…
Got an email from The (REDACTED) Review this afternoon regarding a note I’d sent in January. I'd been enquiring after a story I’d mailed to them in October of 2013, which I assumed to be lost since I hadn’t received a notice from them either for or against acceptance. The staff’s response was that they were currently accepting submissions for the next volume, but wouldn’t begin the review process until August.
I don’t know. Maybe it’s me. But if the skill level of their readers is so wanting they aren't able to comprehend, and answer, a simply stated question about a lost submission, it might be best not to trust them with an entire manuscript.
