Great news! Intern2 was assigned the fiction slush pile, but he can’t handle the load. So they’ve decided to split the slush pile between Intern2 and myself. I am so dead excited. Finally, I get to do some work in fiction. I know there’ll be a lot of dross, but there’s bound to be one or two brilliant pieces. In fact, what if sitting in that pile is the next Sophie Kinsella, Margaret Atwood or Stephenie Meyer? Or, I could even find the next Booker Prize winner and give him/her their big break!
Wow! This sort of power trip is just almost orgasmic. I cannot wait to get started!
