Tra-la! It's May! The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when everyone goes
It's here, it's here! That shocking time of year,
When tons of wicked little thoughts
(Name the musical and the character who sings the song, and you get a gold star.)
First, to alleviate confusion about Monday's Drop the Needle:
The submission process is exactly the same as it's always been, except that I will be using a lottery system instead of initiating a mad rush to the collective mouse (ur, mice?). So your submission will look like this:
...and you will email it to me as usual. The full guidelines will be posted on Monday morning when submissions open, so everything will be covered in full.
And no, participating in Drop the Needle (or any other in-house crit) does not exclude you from entered the next Secret Agent contest.
Still have a question? Don't hesitate to ask.
For today's comment box chatter: It's "blog demographics" day! I would love to know the following about you:
- How long have you been writing seriously?
- How far along are you in the submissions process? (i.e., Still writing that first draft? Been submitting to agents for twelve years? Already published?)
- What's your main reason for adoring this blog? (heh)
- What's your biggest frustration, regardless of which point you're at in the journey?
Have a glorious first-weekend-of -May!
