What a wonderful birthday present I gave myself yesterday.
On September 8th I started writing a short story and finished a few hours later. A couple of hours after I finished, my husband edited it for me, my daughter read it, and I submitted it. The next morning, my birthday, I received an acceptance! And that made my day. (I'll put up the cover art once its been released.)
Tomorrows goal is to write to some of my favorite authors and editors. I've written to most of them before, but they were very generalized; receiving general replies. This time I have specific questions for each of them and will be anxiously awaiting their responses.
This has been a great year for me and I hope it continues to be so.
