I got ambitious after work today and did a little manuscript/market juggling, and figured out how to get four more subs out. Two are to quick markets, so I'll have them back next week, but the pile in "pale green--waiting for market" on my submissions spreadsheet was getting out of control. So I have envelopes or emails going to Alchemy, F&SF, SH, and Realms of Fantasy today, putting my total-subs-out back up to 15, counting the novel.
Which means that by the time I'm ready to send "Wane" out, F&SF should have cleared the dreamy little magic realism piece I expect they'll hate, and I can swap. And then send the dlmr piece to SH once they kick back the heroic fantasy I expect they will hate.
This, by the way, is known as "letting the editor do the rejecting instead of rejecting yourself." I don't actually expect these markets to buy these particular stories, but you never know: ideomancer doesn't buy heroic fantasy, and they bought mine.
So, left to do today, the slush and the wordcount.
Lookit me being productive. Something to be said for a crappy economy after all.
