Story Got Accepted!

Remember the funny post I wrote about developing a story in four days to meet a deadline? (This post.) I started with less than nothing. Truly. My brain was so empty of ideas that it was vacuum. No way, I thought, can I come up with a plausible idea by deadline much less write it up.

Of course, thinking this, I had to give it a try.

Well, the story got accepted into the anthology to be published by TripleTree Publishing! And I didn’t know this, but I’ll be paid a little bit of money, too. That’s always a bonus.

What’s amazing is that the story is barely a second draft. Yiiikers. I expect to work through a few heavy rounds with the anthology’s editor. But that’s okay. I’ll bet I learn something.

  1. That’s great news! Congratulations. And thanks for your comment over on my blog. This year, especially right now, it’s good to remember those things we are grateful for. 🙂

  2. Fantastic! Now I will finally get to read something that you’ve written! Besides this blog, I mean. Let us know the publication details when you can.

  3. Hi everyone, thanks! Yesterday I finally read the story again — hadn’t looked at it since 9/31. I’m glad to say I wasn’t appalled (but it does need work). And I only noticed one egregious typo — not bad. 🙂
