Yesterday I picked up a new magazine and thought ..Wow I have a story that will fit that. I checked out their web page for editors details and info on how to submit. Crafted my submission email crossed my fingers and hit send. Bang! It bounced back. I checked to see I had copied the email address correctly – well yes I had, so undeterred I looked up the editors private email and sent it again. Alas and alack it bounced back a second time. At this point, I was wondering if the universe was trying to tell me something. What to do next. I took myself off to the publication’s Facebook page and sent a message. By this time it was after 5.00pm., and I asked the question, were they having email problems? I was not expecting an answer until sometime today.
I was beginning to feel that this wasn’t meant to be or this was a trial to see if I would persevere and breach their defensive barrier. This morning a message arrived giving their web address contact sheet info. No other details just the web address. OK third time LUCK Y — for the third and final time I copied the submission details into the upload area, passed the Spybot test confirming that I am a real person not a robot, hit submit and after watching it take forever to upload have received an email saying my contact has been received. Now I feel that I have breached the summit of Olympus and begin the nail biting anxious wait for a yes please, no thank you or a stony silence…..everything crossed for a positive response.
