Dare I Hope?

I received notice yesterday that an editor at Apex had read my story "A Fairy for Bin Laden." I didn't immediately receive a rejection, like I had in the past with similar submissions, so I have cause for hope.

I checked the status this morning, and saw it was "under consideration." Dare I hope?

I've tried to put submissions out of my mind until they have been processed. Lately, I've been banging away on pieces of my fantasy novel; I can't say for sure how good the pieces are in first draft, but banging out a thousand words at at time of decent quality seems to be coming easier and easier, as I imagine it would.

Now if only that pesky first sale would come . . .
