I was rolling along, checking my various websites as I do every night before going to bed, when I accidentally typed S+Enter into the address bar. For that to make sense, you have to know that I don’t remember web addresses, my browser does it for me. Usually I just type in the first letter or two and hit Enter. The proper website pulls up without fail because I’m a sad excuse of a Millennial (though I prefer to think of myself as the tail end of the MTV Generation, thank you very much) and only have like five sites I ever go to.
When I hit S+Enter, my Submittable submissions manager popped up. To say I’d forgotten about the short stories I’d sent off would be disingenuous, but I’d been putting them out of mind. I’m a chronic worrier, so the less to worry about the better. Especially since I knew it would be months before I heard anything back.
Imagine my surprise when the page opened and one of them no longer said “Received,” but instead boasted “In Progress!”
The man speaks a lot of truth. I guess that’s why I married him, though if I wanted complaints about my snoring I’d have married a tape deck. >.>
Anyway, we’ll see what happens. Maybe I’ll hear back much sooner than I thought. *crosses fingers*
