Weak and Impulsive

I'm going to be the death of myself. I'm supposed to have an article coming out in a magazine and I thought it was due in the March issue. I ran to the newsstands and ravaged the issue seeing not one mention of myself. Instead of calmly waiting until morning and phoning the editor, I fired off a crazed, midnight, post-L word email freaking out about not being printed or paid. Did I just shoot off my own foot at that magazine??? Are they going to continue to hire me for assignments??? I basically threatened to not write my next article for them until I got an explanation. I then immediately freaked out and called some other writers to analyze every word and puncuation mark in my email to see how the tone would be interpreted.

This morning, I had a brief email from the editor in which he gently (I assume the gently part) explained that the article was never intended for this issue and sorry about confusion, blah blah blah. So now I'm stuck interpreting his tone and wondering if he will ever call me again. I feel like I'm dating this person. I don't want to come off too strong and desperate. I don't want him to smell my desperation for clips. Maybe I should play hard to get. I don't remember how to date!! How do I win back this editor's heart? Or have I even lost it???

Clearly, the best thing to do is wait three days and then leave him a message on his voicemail in which I cry and break up with him.

just don't break up by a post-it note...

if you think treating like you're dating is the way to go...my old standby excuse for overly emotional rants is the deadly combination of Red Wine and PMS.
