Got an acceptance!


Well, since this neat blue (for me) forum is really where all this started, I figured I'd come round and share a neat story acceptance.

The community college I attended has a killer Creative Writing program. I took a couple classes a while back and absolutely loved it.

Anyhow, ever since I took those classes in 2009 I have been subbing to their literary fiction yearly rag. Literally, every single year. It's not easy to get into (even though it's not a paying market) because they use the publication to teach their courses, so only very strong stories are accepted.

Well, this year, they finally accepted one of mine. I am over the moon! And a lot of bigwigs write for it, too, not just locals; it's pretty respected in the writerly world. Anne Rice has contributed as well as MFAs and instructors from Berkeley to Texas and all sorts of other places. I hadn't realized that until my story was let in.

Anyhow, yeah, a legit acceptance! It's really nice validation, honestly. My writing is still improving!

How's everyone else doing with their words? Still going or not so much?




I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.

Congratulations. Perhaps when it comes out in print you will post info here as to how to purchase a copy of the one in which your story is published?
