I just submitted a short story for publication

I feel like I’m going to throw up.

There is NO WAY they’re going to pick it. I’m not being modest or overly self-deprecating. I don’t write in the style that they’ve been printing lately. It’s not edgy enough or weird enough. It’s fine. I like my story. And this is just practice for submitting. I’ve never done it before. They have a regular submission window each week so I don’t have to wait several months. Once they reject it, I’ve got a couple of other options lined up.

I really hope they don’t laugh at me.

I seriously feel like I’ve made a colossal mistake.

Can someone bring me a damn cupcake?
