Warning: I'm feeling especially desperate for affirmation and positive feedback this afternoon (it's been a tough week, writing-wise)...

So here's my unveiled attempt to solicit an AW pat on the back: an editor just called me to make an out-of-the-blue assignment!! This has never happened before in my writing career, which is now all of 7 months old. I'm thrilled! So what if it is low-paying and due in three days? She said she likes my work (based, I guess, on the clips I sent and the query she accepted a couple weeks ago) - and my little writer ego really needed to hear that today.

Thanks for indulging me!
