Having written that, I need to make clear that stuff can get held up for a variety of reasons: People get very busy and don't have time to follow up on my queries. People have second thoughts because they've made a unilateral decision that required permission they didn't get. When I'm answerable to editors, they might change their minds or find something else they want me to do instead. (Which explains my disdain for the NHL All-Star Games to this day. I was working on a series I really loved about the business of Nashville hockey and got pulled to sit in front of a TV and watch people ask Dustin Byfuglien if he could rap. Three days of cringe except for seven minutes of sheer darned awe watching Shea Weber and Zdeno Chara battle it out in the skills competition. Also lots of Sasha goodness. BUT THAT STILL DOES NOT MITIGATE... ::pant pant pant:: Focus.) Maybe they thought my writing sucked.
Things happen. It's not always a dick move on my or anyone else's part.
