misguidance: (tentaclerape!)
So, I decided to go out on a limb and enter an open call for manuscripts that has been put out by Hodderscape- a publishing house that specialises in speculative fiction.  I have spent the last 4 days writing a synopsis of each novel, and proof-reading the first three chapters that I had to send in for each one. 

I'm pleased to say that I have managed to get both submissions in before the deadline, but it wasn't without some issues.  Half way through writing the supporting e-mail for the second submission, my browser crashed.  While I was trying to close it down, I got a terrifying pop-up saying that my e-mail had been sent- meaning that I had sent off my second submission without a title or a covering message!  I therefore had to submit it a second time, with a note in my e-mail basically going I'M SORRY MY COMPUTER HATES ME WAAA just in case they do get two copies. -___  Yay for self-sabotaging browser crashes!

Anyway, now it's just a waiting game.  I'm unlikely to hear anything back before October, so it will be a tense few months on the writing front.  On the upside, it gave me something to do while I have been off sick for the last few days.  I'm back to work on Monday (finally!) so I can go back to being gut-churningly stressed about work instead of being gut-churningly stressed about this! ^__-.
