I Can't Acquire the Next Newbery; I've Filled My Quota for the Month

Are there ever times where you find yourself buying two manuscripts at the same time? (Say, within a few weeks.) Or do you generally try to avoid that?
Why would I avoid that? I acquire when I get the chance to acquire, and no other consideration of timing often comes into it. I think I once offered on three things in the same week.

What is your opinion of writers submitting to agents and editors at the same time, especially for picture books? Say a ms was well received during a First Pages session and the editors said they would like to see the rest of the book, would the writer be better off securing an agent before submitting or should he go ahead and submit on his own?
Thanks for providing a safe place for writers to learn and grow.

As both a writer and a freelance editor, it frustrates me that many writers think that an editor's role is to destroy dreams. An editor's job is to find the best possible books to publish, so if something great comes in, aren't they going to sign it up?

Sepak bola bisa dimainkan di rumput atau rumput sintetis, tetapi permukaannya harus berwarna hijau. Lapangan harus berbentuk persegi panjang, dan ditandai dengan jelas oleh dua garis gawang pendek dan dua garis sentuh panjang.

Lapangan dibagi menjadi dua bagian, dipisahkan oleh garis tengah, yang membentang dari titik tengah setiap touchline. Pada titik tengah garis tengah terdapat titik pusat bertanda yang dikelilingi oleh lingkaran tengah berjajar dengan jari-jari 10 yard. Pemain lawan tidak diperbolehkan memasuki lingkaran ini selama kick-off tim pemilik.
