I got an email yesterday evening that said one of my submitted short stories has been accepted for publication in an anthology (Hint: Not by a publisher who has previously accepted my work). They don’t have the pre-order info on their site yet, so I can’t give out details, what I just wanted to mention that for 2019, I’m four for four.
On the one hand, I’m incredibly delighted to add to my publications list and have another story put on my writer’s resume, but now I’m really worried when the bubble pops and one (or more, or a lot more) of my stories is/are rejected.
Naturally, I’d like everything I submit for publication to be accepted, but that’s not how the math works.
Anyway, for now, I’m going to celebrate yet another upcoming publication. When I get the go ahead, I’ll provide all the details, but there are at least some of you who know this story very well, and it’s the first one to be accepted post last November’s writing class.
