…and I do my happy dance, yeah, my happy dance

I woke up today to a lovely email.

An ACCEPTANCE email. Gosh, there have been so many rejections this year, it’s lovely to have something different. Before I opened it I was sure it was going to say ‘thanks, but no thanks’. I started reading and got to the ‘I enjoyed it…’ and finished the sentence with ‘…but it just isn’t a good fit for the zine’. Much to my surprise and joy, it said ‘…we’d like to include…’


I’d just like to mention that this is also the first thing I’ve had ‘accepted’ to a place where I don’t know someone. Which is not to say that I think I’ve had things published just because I’ve known people (I respect them too much to think they’d say yes just because I’m someone they know!), and so it feels slightly different. Not more exciting, but maybe a little cooler because there is no question in my mind about whether prior knowledge of me had any influence over the final decision.

Anyway – YAY! More details later after I’ve sent back what I need to and have more information to share πŸ™‚

    1. hehe, thanks, Anthony. What’s going on? You’re commenting a lot more lately! Is this a ‘between rounds of writing/revisions/edits’ thing, or something else?

      1. Awww, Cassie, it’s not too hard to figure out. You come to my blog all the time, so I come to yours!

        Beyond that, though, I am a little bit in awe of you, You live in one of the best places to live on earth, you are a talented writer and you decided that two wonderful babies were not enough, you just had to have one more. And you speak video-game speak.

        You’re a bit of awesome!

    For she’s a jolly good ‘writer’,

    and so say all of us!
