Slush day

I try to set one day a week aside as the day to go through submissions, though usually that gets superceded by a pressing deadline. But today I set deadlines aside because the slush pile was collapsing from its own weight, and I’m glad I did.
Rarely do I find submissions that make me giggle. At least, not in a good way. But today I found one that meant to be funny and it was! And I had several others that weren’t trying to be funny, so of course I didn’t laugh, but they were still good writing, good storytelling, and I wanted to read more. Good job, slush people! And not-so-slush, as it were, because some of them were people I’d met before.
Now to get back to reading the full manuscripts I’ve already got!
