woo hoo! I had pretty much decided that short stories clearly weren't my thing, when one that i'd submitted ages ago (like 9 months or so) just got accepted by a literary journal!

I'd actually forgotten that story was still out there.

anyway, i'm thrilled and now inspired enough to send some more out there into the world.

so... keep submitting, you never know!

Cassidy. There are two things I like reading about the most in this forum...writers who are ready to give up finally getting that golden ticket AND Canadian writers having success stories. You fill both quotas here! I know, I know...I'm biased on the Canadian thing...so sue me.

CONGRATULATIONS! GREAT NEWS!

Now tell us what journal you will be in.

Enjoy the ride and continue submitting. NEVER GIVE UP!

It's so heartening to hear the successes. Just goes to show that when you least expect it, good things happen. Congrats.

Wow.

That was so nice to read. I can see why folks like to hang out here.

The story will be in a journal called Room of One's Own, which is published out of Vancouver, and my story is called Raising Truth. Probably won't be out for quite awhile though-- issue 30.1, I believe. They have a nice website with submission guidelines etc, if any other Canadians out there are looking for somewhere to submit to!

Thanks again for all the encouragement! -Cassidy
