I’m still working through all of the submissions. There were a lot of them during the last 3 days. About 1/3 of the total submissions. I took the weekend off from reading to do some work around the house, but last night I think I read 12 more. I’m hoping to have my selections made by the end of the week.
If you submitted near the beginning of the month but still haven’t heard back, it means you’ve passed the initial round and I’m just trying to figure out which stories have to receive the reluctant ax. I’m trying to include a variety of genres so that future submitters get a good idea what I’m willing to include. Who knew editing a magazine would be so hard?
In other magazine news, I got a sketch back from this issue’s cover artist. I’m pretty sure it’s going to turn out awesome.
In completely unrelated news, I got a call from the police this week. They recovered my stolen bike! I cannot believe how unbelievably lucky/blessed I am sometimes.
