I could not smile any wider if I had instruments to help me do it.
In the last week, I have recieved two (yes, TWO!) acceptance letters from publications I love and respect. I’m not sure if it’s OK to publicize who they are before they’re released, so let’s just say that I’m in, I’ll be published, I’ll be pimping the hell out of these journals when they’re released, both to come out in the next few months.
It’s a funny experience – I’ve just had a moment where I went “Oh shit! People will be reading my writing!” Real people, with critical minds. That makes me a bit nervous…
I also now have this itch to write, follow it up, follow it up! Publication is not an end-point, it’s just the beginning.
