I've been gloating about a literary analysis paper I wrote being published in a collection.  :)  Pathetic I know Spuffy but I'm having a comically good time telling everyone I'm published when in actuality about the only way you could read anything I wrote is finding it in an academic research database...

Made me SLIGHTLY proud, and gave me a good laugh at the same time.

Two in one day? Wow.

I guess that means I buy two rounds of Guinness at Monica's this weekend.  ;)

Congrats, Darby!

That's awesome - always nice to see a native "make it big."

Sold another!  And it's one you can read online.  Plus it's real short, so if it's boring, it only lasts a moment!

Congrats Darby!  It was very short but hooked me really quickly.  Is this an ongoing story?

Nah, it's just the one piece.  It actually was a lot longer to begin with, and it still could be, I suppose.  Thanks for the comments.    :)

I should actually take the opportunity to thank you here for helping with the formatting on those stories a while back.  They didn't sell to the magazine, and of course now they changed it so it's not to hard a thing to submit, but I appreciate it anyway!

Congrats, Spuffy!

I know the thrill of being published can't easily be matched.
