Confirmation came yesterday via email; my article submission did indeed arrive at its destination. The assistant editor, a very pleasant and helpful email correspondent, assured me she was passing it to the editor who would in turn be in touch as needed.
At this point, just knowing it arrived and will be considered is good enough for me. It will be upwards of six weeks until I hear anything. Luckily we are drawing near to Thanksgiving break and the end of this fall 2007 term, read the last day of classes, is one month from tomorrow.
