Normally submissions are great inspiration for the blog. I get all sorts of weird and wacky things when submissions are open, like that time the person submitted his/her entire manuscript on purple paper (because purple was a Blooming Tree color?) or the individual that packaged his/her submission with a handful of glitter.

Ah, memories.

But this submission round I so far find myself curiously lacking instructive submissions. Every one I’ve seen has been professional with well written cover letters and a decided lack of quirkiness.

Bravo.
