Why I am a Loser - Part 3,851

On August 24th, I submitted "I Was Middle-Aged Zombie" to several publications. Later that day, Jennifer Wood of Moviemaker Magazine wrote me. She asked for any pictures I had before she she to make a "final determination." I immediately sent her the pics.

Later that day - nothing.

The next day - nothing.

Two days later - nothing.

Needless to say, I was starting to wonder. Everytime my Lotus Notes lit up, I quickly looked to see if it was her. It never was. Every day I had to fight back the urge to write her. I mean, she wrote me RIGHT back after I initially queried her! What the heck was taking so long....either she likes it or not! After one week, I decided I could wait no longer. So, on September 2nd, I wrote her. Almost immediately, I got this reply -

"I will be out of the office from August 25th through September 10th...."


Long story short, she wrote me back upon returning and told me she was busy with vacation and moving, but she will be in touch.

That was a week ago - my e-mail finger is getting twitchy again.

Rock On,
