My submission to Letters to My Mother, an anthology of true letters dedicated to mothers, has been accepted. I received the contract today. How did I react? Well, the heartbeat and pulse rate are still normal, my vocal cords haven’t been injured yet, and no, I didn’t send a large batch of emails to friends. I did post the news on the message board of a writing forum I visit, though.
I am here, sharing the moment with you all 🙂
Post Script: It would be inaccurate to say I didn’t celebrate this news with any measure of oddness. I did clean my computer table with a liquid cleaner, extracting sedimented heaps of dust. The spotless marvel looks barely recognisable to my eyes.
