2012 Resolutions — Progress Report #8

Still playing catch-up.  I can’t say I made any visible progress on any of my goals in August, so I’m not going to break it down here.  The good news is that I at least have something to celebrate in all of that — mainly, my story acceptance when I expected a rejection.   I’m heading into the busy season on my day job, though, so it remains to be seen how much time I will have in the next couple of months.

The next few months should be interesting, as far as time goes.  Too bad there can’t be a few more hours in the day.  Oh, if I could only have a time-turner! 😉

It will also appear in their flash fiction anthology next year. 🙂

It’s just a small sale (my husband thought we’d won the lottery with the way I was bouncing off the walls, then laughed when I had to tell him the pay rate), but it’s my first official publishing credit.  I think that calls for a little celebration:
