Doing the writer’s jig

Yes – it’s happened again.
A magazine arrived in the mail a few days ago with another of my short stories published. This is the first time I’ve managed to get published in this particular magazine which makes it extra special. The publication is only quarterly, somewhat smaller than most and the editors are extremely selective with the content. Competition is rather fierce for the limited space.
And mine was the only short story chosen for this issue. Wow.
At this rate, you’re going to be dancing full-time. 🙂 Keep it up.
Thanks Rick. Not sure I’m fit enough to do that. However, right now I’m working hard at the blogging part of my writing in order to free up more time to devote to other writing. I have several novels and picture books for children that are urgently needing final editting and sending off to publishers. As my wife keeps urging me – ‘get them out there.’
“Behind every good man is a good woman” – prodding with a stick. 😉 Sometimes I think women are right when they say that left to themselves men would still be living in caves.
I suspect there is some truth in what you say, but please don’t tell my wife.
