I'm all about the earth, but must admit I'm not as green as I'd like to be (and green is my favorite color), so I've decided to go buy some energy efficient light bulbs today. Will also be helping my kids pick up trash after school today.
Today is business as usual. Doing follow-ups for clients yesterday and today so we can send some new submissions out tomorrow and Thursday. How long do we wait to follow-up? Well, our ideal time is 6 weeks for the first follow up, then 3 weeks from there on out. If I know the editor better or am in contact with them often, I might not do a follow up as often because I know they're working on it. And sometimes holidays and editors being out of office get in the way of sticking to the 3 weeks.
My son had his first coach pitch baseball game over the weekend. We lost 27-5, but considering they'd only had 4 practices (darn snow) and the other team was together last year, I think we did pretty spiffy. I almost feel guilty for having such a blast watching them play (when the Rockies miss a play it's just not that cute).
We usually close down the first of May to subs, but we're going to extend it to the 15th because we're still looking. Of course, our next client could be sitting in my pile of manuscript requests. So far we've requested 15 manuscripts and rejected 7.
Get out and enjoy the day if you can, my little beasties, and stay literate;)
