Thread: I did it! I'm getting a manuscript PUBLISHED!

    I did it! I'm getting a manuscript PUBLISHED!

    I'm so over the moon right now due to the email I just got back from a publisher!!! An online/print magazine called 'Montreal Writes' up her in Canada has agreed to publish one of my short stories, entitled 'Obsession'.

    It's a modern day take on the classic Moby Dick tale. A navy Captain loses his son to a pirate attack, and goes all-out to avenge his son's death, with his revenge consuming with from within as time passes.

    I can't wait to see it up there on the MW website!!!

    As awesome as this is, I cannot become complacent. I must continue to improve my writing, and keep shopping manuscripts around to more publishers. This is a very big step in my career as a writer, and I can't wait to take it further!!!

    I also thank everyone here for their input in the time I've been a member, and thank you all for your support!

    Hey JJ -- one Canuck to another: congratulations, M'Man! I remember vividly my first acceptance of a poem. . . .it's like yer whole fuckin' LIFE has been validated. Then I felt humble for getting such an ego-rush. Lots of warring emotions. Anyhoo, as our friends in Oz are wont to say. . .good on ya, Mite! May you enjoy many more such moments.

    PS Your Moby Dick analogy immediately flashed me to the Charles Bronson Death Wish movies (4 of them, I think?), and his obsessive street war with the punk-gangs that killed his wife and daughter. It's a theme that grabs every father, I would think. And there's a certain romantic derring-do about clashes with modern pirates on the high seas--do I get a sniff of a screen play down the road???

    PPS I did some of my RCAF basic training at Barrie, must be 200 years ago, or so it seems. Memories . . . . . ..
