So, I sent a story out in March and the guidelines said they should have an answer for me by the end of May and, if not, I should inquire about it. The thing is, I'm not really sure how to do that? I mean, is it as simple as sending out an email saying, 'Hey, what's the word on my story?' or is there a particular procedure involved?

Any advice? Also, is the fact that they've had it so long a good sign, a bad sign, or just one of those things?
