I hate to think that she's actually gone to the trouble to edit my story, only for all that effort to be wasted because I published without waiting for her response.
I've had that experience. I emailed one and didn't hear back for 3 days, because I had a rejection. So I emailed another, but put my story in anyway because I was confident it would be ok. (I panicked)
Then I heard back from the second one! And I had put my story in, but she wasn't fussed about it at all! I'm now working with her on other stuff...
