I got a reply!

I think my heart actually skipped a beat when I opened my mail this morning... There it was... a reply from the magazine! I didn't think they'd bother to send a response if they didn't like the story. I was hopeful. I took a deep breath. I clicked. I read...

"Lillian - we cannot open docx - please re-send your document as part of your E-mail. Kindly include this entire E-mail in your response. Thanks for your interest!"

I'm on cloud nine! I got an answer! Hey, my glass is half-full...

Congratulations. You have your foot in the door - well maybe not a real foot -but a cyber foot is a start.

Congrats, at least you know they are paying attention.
Time for the happy dance, that's a great way to start the week.

Oh, I know how you feel! I've worked hard for the past five years as a freelance writer. The snailbox and the e-mail box are the heart's toughest clients. I wish you the very best of luck and because of your lovely honesty (and all the trepidation that follows us who dream and work hard to be writers), I am following your blog until the end of time. My highest hopes for you!
