Writing Journal: Wow! An Acceptance!


Just to give a quick update.  I'm still recovering from Vacation week time-wise, and regrettably lagging behind on my writing goals, so I don't have the time I'd like to take for a longer post (I also have some ideas for other posts I'd like to make once things settle down some). 

Anyway, I did manage to complete a story last week for my W1S1 commitment ("Storms", submitted to Every Day Fiction), although I'm still a week behind.  Hopefully I can get an extra one finished this week (unlikely) or next (more likely), and get back on  my goal target.

Also, I've actually, amazingly, wonderfully, and awesomely (to spew adverbs in a very non-professional-writerly way) had my first acceptance!  My 50-word story "Expectations" was accepted by Tim Sevenhuysen at Fifty Word Stories, and will be published there later this week!!!!  Too cool!

I'll update when the story is posted and give a link.  In the meantime, I'm scrambling through another busy week and trying to somehow trying to get some writing done amid the chaos.
