Feels better than a straight out 'no'

Of a bunch of devotions I wrote for one publisher back in December 2019, one is being considered for the future. Won’t find out if it’s accepted for another year.

Going by past experience, the piece may or may not be accepted, as other devotions of mine have been considered for a year, and after a year of those being considered, some were accepted and others were not.

I just don’t know for sure if this latest one will be published. But it feels better than having it straight out rejected at the start. A long time to wait, for sure, but well worth the wait, because this devotion would be a strong contender, going by the fact it’s come this far.
