I vowed it would be sent out before August ended, and since I'm the Procrastination Princess, it was sent out today. At 4:15 this afternoon.
So, maybe I'll hear from Albert Whitman & Company tomorrow? Or later in the week? Place your bets on whether it will tomorrow, Thursday or Friday before a response is received.
Seriously, if you think of yourself as a writer, you have to put your stuff out somehow. That might mean you belong to group of writers, and you get feedback as you write and revise. That might mean you scratch your poetry into the walls of a toilet stall. Or that might mean that you keep submitting, and looking forward to rejection letters along with--hopefully, a letter of acceptance---because that means you're living the writer's life.
