Well, it pretty much sucks to be anyone involved in publishing right now, I think. Yeah, it sucks for me and other aspiring authors because companies will slow down acquiring new projects, but it really sucks for those who lost their jobs in the past few weeks.
Since everyone who visits me is, I'm pretty sure, a writer, what are your plans for the upcoming months? Will you hunch down and polish your manuscripts until they gleam? Try to write as much as you can so you'll have tons of stuff to submit when things calm down? Or will you go on with business as usual?
I'm nowhere near the querying stage, despite my drafted letter below. I'm editing DRAWN TO YOU, slowly but surely. It's pretty fun to add in scenes. When it's all said and done, I think the ms will be closer to 60k. Whee!
