There might already have been a thread on this at one point, but I don’t really feel like digging back a bit, so maybe all you veterans can help…

I have a work that I submitted to a magazine over 2 months ago.  After I submitted it, I had recieved a confirmation email saying that all submissions would recieve a response within 6-8 weeks.  I use duotrope, and the for this publication my pending response time turned red, which means the magazine says it would be appropriate to query on my submission… 

So, what kind of query would I send? Just a friendly note that says something about having submitted a work more than 8 weeks ago, my name and the title, and that I would appreciate any information on the status?  Or does this require something more formal?

Any help would be greatly appreciated…
