When my schedule's full, and the critgroup has subbed a lot of pages, I don't get to write more than a few words or tune up a couple of sentences. I'm not complaining. I'm reading novels by Melinda Snodgrass, M.L.N. Hanover (aka Daniel Abraham), and Ian Tregillis. This month, S.M. Stirling subbed his entire next manuscript in his series that began with Dies the Fire: A Novel of the Change. I get to see how cool it is before his editor or agent, even.
