Default Re: So--who does original fic?

There's another thing - one submission at a time. With an electronic submission they can tell you within a reasonable time whether they are going to use it. With snail-mail, I posted a manuscript to one of the bigger global publishing companies, I think it was Hodder, while I was in London. It turned up back in New Zealand eighteen months later, unread, no go, and an explanation that sounded as if it was straight out of one of the lesser TV soap operas. (it was terrible anyway!) But that was eighteen months that I couldn't have sent it anywhere else.

In the meantime, apart from one long-running and still unfinished fanfic on AnneMcCaffreyfans, that part of my mind has mostly been occupied with academic writing and getting degrees in Religious Studies and History.
