Some time back -at the bottom of the blog- a Snarkling asked if it mattered when a manuscript or query is sent. August for example is notoriously slow in publishing. Last two weeks of December (three if we work it right) too.
Miss Snark was rather quick to answer that good writing rises to the top and send it when it is ready.
Miss Snark is rethinking this.
It's hot. The weather has been all over the place. Days of 90 then days of 70. Everyone on the subway is crabby. Well..crabbier than normal.
Miss Snark is pretty much at full tilt boogie crabby 24/7.
She's finding that she's MUCH quicker to say no to queries and MUCH less patient with work that might only need a kinder eye.
Her loss? ya sure.
But yanno. Why risk it.
Save your stuff till September. And don't send anything in December.
