First, I'll insert my opinion on us LAMPS.
(Going to use HE for ease of reading, not that I know anything.)
1. our stories are/were physically in Oklahoma. They need to be boxed up, those read and those not, and shipped to the new guy. This will take time.
2. the new guy will sort, making his own little pile of R, HM, and "hold".
3. speculation: Will the new guy insert his own high-tier possibles into the overall list then read again? Will he give more or less weight to those he feels may be finalists compared to those Kathy had already selected?
Professionally, I say yes. One way or the other, this is his quarter now. The finalists are ultimately his
Personally I say no. Because my glass is half empty. I'm not superstitious, I'm pessimistic.
I'm all happy to still be "in" for the quarter, but the truth is, I haven't been read yet and could still get nothing. We shall see.
I do agree he won't tear down anything in the hold pile lower than HM, (Probably not lower than SHM)
I'm filtering Hazlett's list:
Tina - (LAMPS)
Francis Bruno (HOLD PILE)
Izanobu - (HOLD PILE)
Marina - (LAMPS)
Kary - (LAMPS)
Dustin - (LAMPS)
Jennifer Hicks (LAMPS)
The Happy Snappy Gator (HOLD PILE)
Isto - (LAMPS)
gwasch - (LAMPS)
If I didn't write your status, you either didn't say, or I didn't see it in the list. (Sorry)
Marina, I submitted paper for Q1, but elec for Q2, so on Duotrope, only 1 paper is mine.
