She's clearly overwhelmed and loses track of things! My sense is that she gets focused on the projects she's repping and neglects queries about new projects. But if she's really interested in a project, she will come back to it, and if she chooses to rep it, she will be committed to it (will see if that turns out to be the case).

FR from Ruoxi 6/24

the FR came from a submissions email address, but submissions policy gave a different e-mail for Ms. Cleland. The FR email was a bit vague and gave no last name for the requesting person. I'm unsure if this person is reading on Ms. Cleland's behalf or is interested in building their own list.
