First Pro Pub

Now Playing: MACHINEHEAD by Bush

My big day is almost here--my story "Skipping Stones" goes out to DSF's 6,000 subscribers tomorrow morning. Needless to say, I am stoked.

This is my first professional sale, so I'm really excited to get it out there and hear what people think. I'm probably going to tweet and post on facebook about it a lot, so be patient with me. 0:)

If you aren't a subscriber, go subscribe! It's free! They send you a story (like mine, for example!) right to your email inbox every day.

If you don't want to subscribe, though, "Skipping Stones" should pop up on the web on the 25th (next Monday). Please, go rate it and give it a comment. I'd love love love to hear what you think about it.

This is an exciting step for me in my career as a writer. It's a validation of my ambition to be more than someone who can put together some competent prose. A pro magazine accepted my story! Wow. The funny thing is, it doesn't feel like an ending at all, not even a little bit. It feels like another step on a long, tall staircase, and it makes me want to sit down and write myself onto the step above that.

Maybe I'll go and do just that.

Thanks for reading.
