That frustration is completely understandable, and I wish that Medium would alter the algorithm so that publications would be more ready to accept published work. However, it is definitely in your best interests to submit drafts — if you upload, and then wait 2 days for a publication to accept your article, then you’ve lost traffic. If you want to submit to this publication, I’m trying to accept all submissions within 2 hours, because I’ve personally been frustrated by this issue.
