Accepted.

“Rebekah:

I like this and I will accept it. I did have reservations. It approaches on the border of being treacly[…]

I will email you when it is posted and a check for $50 will follow[…]

Thank you for thinking of Metropolis.”
So reads my first official letter of acceptance for publication. I had to look up the word “treacly,” and my tender writer’s ego was bruised by its definition, but I’ll pay for publication with a bruised ego any day.

After four years of working on a degree, two years of attempts to write for hire, and a lifetime spent honing my craft, I’m getting my first legitimate credits. It’s the most exhilarating feeling in the world.

Number 4 is 1/3 of the way completed.
