Apologies for the overly personal post here, but I somewhat suffer from anxiety and tend to be quite pessimistic. Would just like to ask if anyone has ever had issues with publishers not getting back to them? Perhaps laughable that I'm worrying over such a small thing, but I tend to do that. Obviously I've finally got an acceptance, but it's been about 4 days and the editor hasn't got back to me after I sent the contract and told him I was making a few changes to my story. My natural inclination is to imagine he'll vanish without a word for some reason and I'll be back to square one, having withdrawn everything. No reason to assume he'll do that--he liked the story and came to me with the contract--but it's just been a few days already. Months to go until my story would appear, too. Anything could happen. I suppose I just want to ask if this sort of thing does happen to other people. I'm hesitant to even post this, but it helps having people to speak to.
