When waiting for a response to a submitted story, I get anxious after a month or so. Then I tell myself it could be worse, could've gotten a rejection right off the rip. So why does it upset me to get a rejection after waiting over two months?
It would've been worse if it was a plain rejection. Considering how back logged this editor has admitted to being, I am grateful for the comments and suggestions given. I could've been left with no idea what was wrong with my writing, instead I have learned something new.
