Slushy Morning

129 TBR
29 maybe
110 rejections

Question spurred by pure curiosity, not petulance (pinky promise!). The math on the slushy seems off...on Saturday the total was 274 submissions (156/95/23). On Monday it was 275 (150/100/25), which means that of the 6 read in that time, 5 were rejected and 2 were 'maybed', one submission added to the previous total. On Thursday, we had 268 total (129/110/29). 10 rejected, 4 'maybed', and 7 submissions having disappeared completely.

Are these the 'stories of another anthology' you were talking about, or duplicates?

Like I said, a question, in no no no way a complaint or challenge.

Pending some other method, I have to estimate the number of rejected: I look at the number in the Inbox (=TBR), the number in another folder (=Maybe), and then I use the number of "Sent" as approximately = to Maybe + Rejected.

I love your math. It's the sort that will make my wife's sister (PHD in Math) pull her hair out in frustration.

Sorry, I don't know how to separate the answers to miscellaneous inquiries from the rejections in the "Sent" folder.

At any rate, a tip o' the hat to you for getting past the halfway mark.
