Remember the funny post I wrote about developing a story in four days to meet a deadline? (This post.) I started with less than nothing. Truly. My brain was so empty of ideas that it was vacuum. No way, I thought, can I come up with a plausible idea by deadline much less write it up.
Of course, thinking this, I had to give it a try.
Well, the story got accepted into the anthology to be published by TripleTree Publishing! And I didn’t know this, but I’ll be paid a little bit of money, too. That’s always a bonus.
What’s amazing is that the story is barely a second draft. Yiiikers. I expect to work through a few heavy rounds with the anthology’s editor. But that’s okay. I’ll bet I learn something.

Congratulations! How exciting! I love how it’s something you didn’t even expect… a surprise acceptance, how perfect.
Fantastic! Now I will finally get to read something that you’ve written! Besides this blog, I mean. Let us know the publication details when you can.
Hi everyone, thanks! Yesterday I finally read the story again — hadn’t looked at it since 9/31. I’m glad to say I wasn’t appalled (but it does need work). And I only noticed one egregious typo — not bad. 🙂
Congratulations! You are an inspiration. I’m looking forward to reading it.
