Waiting to hear back from Editor X.
Met her at a conference on March 29th.
Submitted on March 31st.
May 11th - no mail.
May 12th - friend gets back a "no" from Editor X.
She submitted April 18th. I do the math. Does this mean Editor X is giving mine serious consideration?
Run and check mail. Nothing.
May 13th - check mail. See a business size envelope addressed to me. Heart skips a beat. Not from Editor X. Phew!
May 14th - check mail. Still nothing.
May 15th - mail hasn't come yet. Check cover letter. Yup. Sent March 31st. Perhaps X is taking story to an editorial meeting? Must be. Unless manuscript got lost?
Must exercise instead of sitting by window all day looking for mailman.
