critiquey stuff

Well, I got my critiques done...and I loved them! I mean, in a way I hated know, you're always secretly hoping that the person will e-mail you back and be like "HOLY CRAP THAT'S SHEER BRILLIANCE! NOTHING NEEDS TO BE CHANGED!" But, honestly...when does that happen? Okay, if it happened to you, no need to tell me about it.
Anyways, I really liked the feedback. I thought they made some awesome points and they really made me think of things I'd never thought of before. Also, because I know how I want it to read, I'll always read it the way I want to hear it- but it's nice to have someone read it with fresh eyes/ears and they can hear little mess-ups in the rhyme that I was previously blind/deaf to. I am now learning (yes, slowly but surely) the importance of critiques.
On a downer, I already submitted Sally Circle in it's original form to several publishers. Oops. Newbie Alert. Too late to judge me, but go ahead...I mean, I do deserve it, really.
What I want to ask the more experienced writers- does this mean I can't send an *edited* version of "Sally Circle" back to those publishing houses that got the original? Are they now out of the game, so to speak? Anything feedback is helpful!
Thanks guys!

I am pretty sure you can resubmit after a while (6-8 months but don't quote me on it) but I thought I read somewhere you might want to rename it. :)
