It's What Day?

A few days ago I suddenly realized that the end of March was fast approaching. I also realized it was the deadline for about half a dozen markets I had wanted to sub to. Could I turn out anything of quality in time (does he turn out anything of quality ever you may be asking) for each one? No way, but I can try and get something sent off to two or three of them, which is what I've been busily doing since Tuesday. It helps that this is a three day weekend for me and I have very few errands to run, so I can maximize my time at the keyboard.

I also realized that I have not had a response at all in March from any of the markets I've subbed to, with the exception of the Dead Bait antho, which told me I was shortlisted back on the third. I'm getting rather nervous, wondering if I made the cut on that one or any of the others (Devil's Food). Of course, now that I've pointed this fact out, I'll be deluged with rejections.

I'm going to miss all those wonderful deadlines. Hope you make it in time.

I have 4 or so markets that are ending their submission periods at the end of the month so I am looking forward to hearing back from them soon. Yes, Devil's Food is one of them.

I'm shaking over Dead Bait as well!

I haven't heard from Dead Bait either! Fingers crossed!

March has been a quiet month for responses for me too. Even the agents aren't rejecting me quite so fast this month.

The end of march has a nasty habit of creeping up like that.

Best of luck with all the anthos...
