I'm on day six and debating what to do.
When I started lit was really solid with the 3 day time to the point I submitted everything on Tuesday knowing it would go up Friday or occasionally a Saturday.
Since the time started drifting to a longer period-and it has steadily risen over the last year- I have started doing Sunday night figuring even 6 days gets me a Saturday.
I also never submit a story during a contest unless its an entry figuring I am avoiding the extra long time, but that seems to no longer be a valid idea.
My thing is I have only had 2 stories post on a Sunday and both were badly lacking in votes views etc... compared to any other day
I am now wondering if I should click pending and deliberately put my story to the back of the list or cross my fingers it goes up Monday and not tomorrow.
It is what it is, but I'm sorry if I am under the feeling that 8+ days is getting to the point of being unacceptable.
