Rejected No Longer

Boy, was I surprised to check my email this morning and find that one of my stories had been accepted for publication. It's a small, literary journal, a new one. My story (a personal essay, actually), will appear in their first print issue. One publication does not a career make, but it has come more quickly than I anticipated. And, even though I don't think I will actually get paid for the story, I find I am euphoric today--difficult to concentrate, but generally in a very good mood.

all butterflies and sugar
accepted at last

Waaaay cool! We must have a drink to publishing when I am there next week! Honestly, I have found inspiration in seeing you go through this journey, and I am just about ready to write for real.
