In June, I submitted a quiz (on spec) to a great teen mag and have been patiently waiting for response. Finally, unable to stand it any longer, I sent a follow up today and promptly received a reply back that my quiz was supposed to be sent to the appropriate editor but that it may have been lost. I immediately resent it and am mad at myself because I should have sent a follow up earlier. My Power Tracker has been beeping at me for months that a "FOLLOW UP IS DUE" and I ignored it, thinking that the editor would surely get back to me soon. So, in short, I wasted 7 months of potential querying to a great magazine. Sigh. Yes, all follow ups that were due for other magazines were sent today.
