Started my review for Tangent of this week's Sci-Fiction offering. Ellen Datlow, the editor of Sci-Fiction, asked on the SFF.net newsgroup whether any new reviews might be published soon. I had to tell her that my Tangent editor is swamped with work but promises to update as soon as he has time. Gleep.
Received a 75-day form reject from Tin House. This was a long shot in any case. Out it goes again.
And still haven't heard from Talebones after my query. It's been over three weeks, and I've seen other people hear back from them with only month or so response times recently. I'm seriously thinking communications are getting lost in transit somewhere in there, so I queried again.
200 new words. Oof. Progress is slow and halting. Hell, it can barely be called "progress."
