Remember two weeks ago when I said with my luck, IGMS would respond to me about Finches two weeks after I'd given up on them and sent the story to Holy Horrors? Today, I got an email from IGMS saying my story passed the first reader and was still under review -- I'd probably get a real response in 10 days, two more weeks tops.

To clear my conscience, I told IGMS I'd previously interpreted their lack of a response as a rejection (I waited 5 months) and submitted my work elsewhere. I understood that this would mean my work might be taken out of their queue. And, this should be a pretty standard thing to do, but. It was a strange feeling having to write that. Not a nice one. Remembering how long it took me to get to some submissions back at G.net myself, it was hardly a nice feeling at all.
