Hello, I have a question regarding submission status.
Last week, I submitted my web novel Arcana Magi and it's status said 'Awaiting Editor Attention' when I hit 'Submit for Approval'. I logged out afterwards assuming that it was going through and when I returned the next day it's status was in 'Draft', which I assumed meant that a reviewer was reading my story and writing a review about it, but now I don't think that was what 'Draft' meant.
So today I just read the forum topic 'Submission timescales' and the poster mentioned about the 'Draft' Status being stuck and I noticed that my submission was still on 'Draft'. Now I fear that when I logged out I didn't give the 'Awaiting Editor Attention' portion of the status to go through and may have stopped the submission prematurely. So I resent the submission and got the 'Awaiting Editor Attention' Status again.
Was this okay? How long will it take for 'Awaiting Editor Attention' to change Status? Will it change to another word other than 'Draft'?
I don't want to accidentaly pile up the reviewers submission pages with multiple resends of my story.
Thank you for your time and help.
