A mad response
|I submitted a short story simultaneously to four magazines. I got a fast acceptance from one. I replied to the editor asking if she paid an honorarium (this wasn't clear in the guidelines) and the answer was no.
So I replied I want to wait to hear from the other places I submitted to and this editor went ballistic saying I was "incredibly poor form and super unprofessional" and she "publishes harassing, obnoxious, and abusive emails unredacted on our social media, too"
I'm new to this and not used to getting acceptances. Was my response so bad I deserved her insults? Was I really harassing, obnoxious, and abusive.
