On March the 12th it will be three months since I sent my MS off. I wonder if that means anything?
Granted, the people I sent it off to read the whole manuscript, which is a bonus in my view, but still… three months… come on. It just HAS to be positive, hasn't it?
Eh?

Whatever, I went through the Vampire 300 story again, changed it a little and now it's gone, into the great wide cyber-world. The story itself was over the word count limit and the guidelines for submission clearly stated that anything over 10K had to be queried first, which I duly did because I'm a good boy, I am.
I received a very nice email back thanking me for sticking to the guidelines and saying that they would keep an eye out for my piece.
The thing that flummoxed me was that they thanked me for sticking to the guidelines. Why wouldn't I?
My word count was 10431 words, the limit was 10000, and they'd know if I'd gone over because it was on a Word document which has a word count installed. Who would be so obtuse as to think that they wouldn't check?
I wonder at the mindset of these people who think along the lines of, "Oh, they'll never know it's over the limit. We'll keep quiet and blag it…"
Bloody Chavs.
Anyway, it's gone now.

I'm tired, irritated and work is getting me down. On top of that my bed is calling me… must sleep…must slee….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hi Tee,
I had a look and even posted something, however it was sent back as unpostable.
Not by Ms. Wicking, I hasten to add, but by the Google thing.
Stranger and stranger...
Whatever, it's a good blog with a lot of peeps following it.
Had a great day at work today. Finished all my work inside of the first three hours and then read my book until knocking off time.
Now that's what I call a good shift.

Why did that come through twice?

tee hat gesagt…

Sometimes my messages come through twice also.
That is the sort of shift I agree with.:-)
Am working on FD but taking time as want to get it right. I lost Dobson somewhere on route so having to reread your bit again.:-)
