That’s mostly what I’ve been doing: submitting work. It’s cut into the amount of time I can spend writing, which is frustrating. It’s also just tough. Researching agents and publishers, finding those who accept SF/fantasy, realising they’re not accepting submissions at the moment, then starting over with another agent.
Through sheer exhaustion I submitted to The Good Literary Agency without realising I wasn’t eligible to be represented by them. Turns out they were quite lovely about it and even took the time say nice things about what I’d submitted. I’m both sorry I wasted their time and that I can’t be represented by them. Still, I’ll get my head down and into another round of submissions.
I’ve still found time to enjoy a few things. Plain Bad Heroines by Emily Danforth and the Loki series were both great, even if their endings did leave me wanting something more. I’ve been looking through Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything and prepping the next arc of our DnD game. Oh, and I discovered Rich Ragany and the Digressions (beautiful rock/pop with dark undercurrents); and Critical Role’s Exandria Unlimited is wonderful.
Okay. Time to… submit.
