Re: 'First three chapters'

That's a pretty positive step, though. A personal reply is always good news, and an invitation to re-submit better.

Good man

If it helps, I'm not immune to that urge. Only yesterday I had to bash my head against the desk to prevent myself chasing up a short story submission before the deadline had even passed. All because I know someone else who's already received a "Yes" from the same anthology.

Silly Troo!

Did this person submit at the same time?

Anyway, editors often keep a few short stories on their desks for further consideration, and maybe to ask for some rewriting.

Re: 'First three chapters'

Being an editor, I know this. I had to slap myself about the head and upper body regions as punishment for my foolishness.

My friend submitted later than me, but I know that she only writes Flash Fiction, usually around 1,000 words. It'd be a few minutes to give such a piece a "yay" or "nay", whereas my longer contribution can safely wait until after the deadline.

And no, 'tis not for *cl*ps* 2. 'Tis for a new biannual magazine due later this year.
