It'll Take How Long?

So, as I mentioned earlier, there are two editors-in-chief (chieves?) reading my essay collection.  Here are what they said to me:
1) "I’m about to head out of town (twice) so look forward to your work when I return."
2) "My response time is usually 16-20 weeks."
How will I mark my iCal for these eventual rejections? I wonder.  (I grow old, I grow old, etc.)

That stinks that it'll take so long! Good luck!

Of course, these are the same nimrods who insist on an "exclusive" look...

Seriously? Getting messages like this would make me want to stab my eyes out every day.

Thank God for non-fiction, is all I have to say... or else I wouldn't have any eyes.

I had a publisher keep my book for a year. Oh, they told me not to submit it elsewhere! ha!
