Annie, I discovered (trial and error) that I can publish as me (when I want to get something out quickly for some reason, usually because I feel emotionally deprived because no one has clapped for my stuff for the last six hours) and then go back to the story, click Edit (which I normally need to do because someone has pointed out one or five sentences that make no sense as originally written) and submit to a publication. Also, that way my story is available as me until the editor accepts it.
