Skipping unimportant details: I just found out that it had been sitting on my contact's desk. Said contact apologized for the delay and informed me it was being given to an editor. I should hear one way or the other sometime in January.
While I want it to be a resounding "Where have you been? This is brilliant! Of course we want to publish your work!," I realize it very well may NOT be so. I am prepared for the latter. Even so...
Could you please send happy thoughts/good wishes/vibes of creativity and success my way. please?
eep. so nervous.
