Slush pile dramas

My husband sent a must read URL. It’s from Tor on slush.

I am editing my first novel, trying to get it into shape to send out to publishers. I am writing my second novel, trying to have it going somewhere by the time I am ready to send out novel one. Plus novel two is a sequel to novel one, so sometimes, when a better idea appears in novel two, I go back and edit novel one.

I read through the article. I figure I ought to at least get to number 9.

Then I read through the comments. This saga of a manuscript in the slush pile was highly entertaining.

I am actually in the middle of reading confessions of a slush pile reader as I write this. I wonder how it will turn out. It is not as punchy as the first, nor as entertaining as the second. At least, not yet.
