Hello Mrs. White,

I've written an article called Forty Ways to Use It Up, Wear It Out, Make It Do, or Do Without.

I noticed that you wanted articles that were as close to the Sunday deadline as possible. Shall I wait until later in the week to post and submit my article for consideration?

Thank you for taking time to answer my question.
