Today I received an email. I stared at the sender’s name for minutes growing more panicked with each passing second. This was the email I’d been anxiously awaiting.
Yes or no. Accepted or rejected. I didn’t think I could handle knowing. Tentatively, I clicked on the subject and saw the email appear before me.
Ten seconds and five deep breaths later I started to read the email…more like frantically skimmed.
Three phrases seemed to jump off the page. Accepted. Published. Being considered for print publication.
Yes, that’s right. I’ve been published….it’s just an online e-zine, but still I have now officially broken into the world of writing and I’m being considered for publication in their print magazine.
April’s story is now being told to hundreds if not thousands of readers. I introduced April here on this blog in this earlier post http://danicapage.blogspot.com/2011/01/you-have-your-story-so-please-just.html for those interested in reading more about it.
Yes, I’ve been published. It is an online e-zine but still I’ve been published. My dream is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Published. Accepted. Being considered for print publication. There aren’t words more beautiful than those three phrases.
