you open up a return envelope from a publication and it's an acceptance instead of a rejection.

Your turn. (PG, please. Thx.) :) Even if it's non-writing related, please add it.

I know I'm excited when anybody I know gets an acceptance envelope, 'cause then I know it can be done.

I'm also excited at the release of a movie that looks like it might be really, really good.

I don't want to be seen as a braggart, but since Susie asked...

I was excited when I sold a short story, even though the pay wasn't much. I got far more excited when I was contacted by the publisher and asked for more, more, more, and did I have any novels, or ideas for novels. Uh, yeah...

Congratulations! Acceptances rock!

Mine is - you know you're excited when you find out that:
1. One of your favorite bands from your teenage years is still together
2. They're working on a new album, tentative release date next month
3. The guitarist who you had such a crush on (and was a cutiepie at thirty) is now seriously, majorly, totally smoking HAWT at fifty-four....

:partyguy::PartySmilMucho congrats!!!!

You know you're excited when...you spend the entire day looking for a new free web host, and finally find one on what turns out to be a valuable web designer resource. Two for the price of one!
