But the closer I get to stuffing those envelopes, the more I find myself running back to the faculty bios and my own pages of notes and summaries of the books they've worked on. Because maybe that manuscript that I was going to send Editor A should actually go to Editor C, but then again, Editor B said that even though her house is known for X she really actually likes Q, so maybe I should send her Manuscript A and Editor C should get D and B should go out to smaller presses, but then again, B might be my strongest one, so if I send it to Editor C then even if it's not her thing maybe she'll hand it off to another editor somewhere in her house who would love it, because Editor A gave us all more time so maybe I should just polish the manuscript I'm finishing and send IT to her and I only have a month left maybe I'll just send them all randomly and see what happens.*
Tell me I'm not alone in this. More importantly, tell me how you handle it. What are your tips for getting over analysis paralysis?
*I would never really do that. Just so you know.
