I was just checking my e-mail tonight and I had a message from a magazine I submitted a short story to, wanting a digital version so they could publish it.
And the real kicker is it’s a short story I wrote as a joke. Don’t get me wrong. It’s cute. But not in a million years is it something I thought anybody would publish–let alone buy!
I know at times like this a writer should probably be reserved and professional, but considering this is the very first time I’ve ever submitted anything that was actually accepted . . . I’m sure a bit of celebration is permissable.
