Excuse me while I do the “writer’s jig.”
And the “writer’s whoopee!”
Ah… that feels good!
Just opened my mail and there’s an acceptance letter from a publisher. I’ve been drowned in rejection letters in recent times so it’s good to reverse the trend. It’s a short story that I entered in a competition recently and almost reached the “commended” category. The payment is modest but it’s something!
Now to get on with more writing.
