Still more permission work today, this time tracking down addresses to send letters to publishers and editors. That actually took a good chunk of time, but I’ve initiated contact with everyone I need to except for one image. There will be a lot of follow up as in some cases I approached the wrong people. Sigh.
I also cleared some old junk out of my office and printed out the full manuscript, along with reviewer comments and publisher guidelines. I started reading through the comments, and they’re generally good. I’m always grateful for feedback that makes my work better, though at times it can be frustrating. It’s especially useful to see where I’m being unclear.
