My head's been in tatters. Seriously. I've been thinking and thinking about my novel, and then I've been writing and writing my novel. It's invigorating. It's like a dream. It's ... f***ing hard work.

So, I've been in that writer place. That place where you forget to eat. That place where you don't return your mother's calls. The place you go where the sound of your girlfriend's moaning is distant. And then, I stick my head out of that place, just to see the sun, and then decide to empty my mail box and throw away some bill reminders. Guess what I find?

It's a letter from an editor. A short story I sent out a while ago has been accepted. What a nice surprise!

Now I'm going to get back to work, after I've cashed the cheque, but I'm going to have to make sure my giddy mood doesn't show in my snarky MC's voice. That would never do. No, it wouldn't. I'll have to make sure that when I'm writing I forget all about my good news.

So, yay :)

Hurray for you! Now, back into snark-infested waters...

Maryn, happy in your behalf (like you couldn't handle it yourself?)

Well done there dude!

Go out and buy some beer, get drunk celebrating, and continue writing with a hangover to keep the snary-snary going - that's my advice heh!

That stuff starts to smell funny if you leave it there too long, you know.

In you, I am well pleased. I love these kinds of updates. Stay in the zone. And smile---albeit snarkily. (-;

Congrats!

I'm sorry about your girlfriend moaning -- we'll keep it down next time. :)

Seriously -- congrats.

I'll just leave one quiet snoopy of awesomeness here. Don't want to spoil the snark.

You go Dr. Gonzo!

Keep plugging away and don't forget to cash that check and buy something fun for yourself. If you are like most starving writers, you'll blow it on something crazy like groceries or rent.

So, after all the awesomeness was mopped up and I got my mind focused once again to the task at hand, I open my email this morning and another one of my shorts has been shortlisted...

I may cry.

Fingers crossed it reaches the final three.
