It's strange, the feeling that comes immediately after submitting something. As well as the usual ( 'What have I done? It's awful... AWFUL I TELL YOU!') There's always the feeling of anticipation, wondering what the editor will think. Of course, since editors are such busy people, by the time a reply normally comes I've not only lost that feeling but also completely forgotten that I sent anything in the first place. This is my first short story submission for a while, so hopefully I'll get a positive response. Even if I don't, it seems better to make the effort to send the stuff out than to just sit on it and wonder.
