Yesterday, dear readers, I got the email I’d been hoping for.  The short story that I submitted a few weeks ago has been accepted!

I’ve done it!

I’m a published writer!

  9. Thanks Melissa! I never imagined I'd have such a dream, or how badly I'd wanted that dream to come true. I know it's just a baby step, but I still can't believe it! One of my first thoughts when I got the email was that I was like you! And that makes me so proud! xx
