publication elation…

I’m still in state of shock, though thankfully it’s diminishing over time or else I wouldn’t be able to function at work. The short story I submitted to eFiction Magazine was accepted and will be a part of the April 2012 issue!

It’s awesome enough that my story will be featured in this magazine, but even more awesome is the motivation it’s given me to keep writing. I feel like I’m getting a little better with each strange idea and set of thoughts I set down on digital paper. Though I’m naive about many things, I realize this path doesn’t run downhill forever and I’ll hit that upward slope of antipathy and defeat before I know it. But for the time being, I’m as happy as a clam. 🙂
