I am very loyal in my submissions. I love elimae, so I thought I would try an experiment. They respond within seven days, so if my piece, "Chasing the Dragon," doesn't make the cut, I will post it here for my fans to read, but my hope is to get it published, post a link to elimae, and mark the exact time it takes from submission(November 12. 3:00 pm Mountain Time) to response. I hope to encourage other magazines and zines to be as effective. I hate the one year wait. Lately, if it makes it six months, I withdraw my work and just post it. I know others say, the longer, the better chance you have, but I see in my mind the work just getting overlooked for some reason.
