Today: 24 submissions--more than either of the past two days, and tied for second-highest-volume day ever.
For those keeping score at home, that's a total of 69 submissions in these first three days of the year. Tied for tenth-highest-volume week, and the week is less than half over. If things continue at this rate, we'll have 170 submissions by the end of the week. But let's hope the volume abates. (Our previous highest-volume week came a couple of years ago, with 101 submissions in a week. But the fact that January 1 was a Sunday this year, so the first week of the year is a full seven-day week, will almost certainly result in more subs than that this week.)
I'm finding that I have less patience than usual for authors who don't follow directions. But it would waste more time to make them jump through the reformat-and-resubmit hoops than to pretend they got it right, so unless the problems are egregious or the author has ignored multiple past requests to format correctly, I just grumble and cope. On the bright side: if it weren't for this, I would have to find something else to grumble about, so this saves me the trouble.
