The path to publication: write, write, write, research, research, research, edit, edit, edit, query, query, query, and then you cry.
Well, I’m currently on that first “query,” so I have some time yet before I’m scheduled to shed my special writer tears. Against the advice of one “Mr. Lardo,” I went ahead and sent out a batch of queries at the end of the week as opposed to early Monday morning. I expect I’ll be sending out many more queries, so a few poorly timed ones can’t hurt too much, can it? CAN IT?!
Wish me luck, jerks (and non-jerks).
