A delay in submission

I've been working on revising my synopsis and cover letter and I think that they are just about there - wherever that is. But then I got to thinking that maybe I shouldn't bother sending it out yet because it's bad enough that they will be stuck on a slush pile for a while without it being stuck in a post office backlog as well. Maybe I'll just hang onto it - at least for now. Or maybe I should rethink the people that I was going to send it to and look out for agents that accept submissions by email.

You could try special delivery but then that could be expensive. Good luck with it whatever you decide.

I think that's a good idea - I've held back on submitting stuff for now, just in case!

I did thnk about special delivery Lily but it could prove a bit expensive. Maybe if the strike goes on a long time.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one holding back karen because I wondered if I was being a bit paranoid.

Yes the postal strikes are a pain, aren't they. Let us know what you decide! x

I decided to wait a while Olivia. It was on the news that there are 35 million letters/parcels already in the system.
