That Big Day When You are Officially Published

It is official.  “Hail to the Chief” and parades official.  I am published!  I recently stumbled on an opportunity to freelance write for Occupy Magazine and I was accepted.  That alone was a pleasant surprise, considering I don’t have the kind of experience that is usually required.  So, they accepted me and I began the journey of finding some news to write about.

You can read my article at your leisure.  I also just received a follow-up email stating my story has been reprinted already!  I just stand in awe.

An update

Waiting for a response to my submission can be nerve-wracking.  After 3 months, I contacted the magazine and they responded.  After delays due to staff changes, they were still considering my short story for publication.  I can continue to check online, and I can email them again in 3 months if I haven’t gotten a response.  A mixed answer.  Hopeful on the one hand, but it causes me to squirm with anticipation.

In other news, I have a bare-bones skeleton of my novel completed now.  NaNoWriMo was exactly what I needed to push me.  While I didn’t hit 50,000 words in any way, shape, or form, the story is out of my brain.  Now comes the time of tweaking it.  In some ways, this feels good.  I wrote a story.  A long story at that and one that I think is at least decent.  Is it ready for people to read besides myself?  Nope.  But at least I’m done.
