Thread: Bragging Thread!

    Bragging Thread!

    Do we have an acceptance bragging thread? If not, now we do!

    The Forge Literary Magazine has accepted a flash story from me that I forgot I'd submitted. $60. Woo hoo!

    I took a couple of years off and felt like I had completely lost my touch, so this makes me happy.

    Seriously, I really have no idea. It's not unusual that nobody wants the stories that I think are the best or that the ones I send out without much hope get snapped up. It's all just weird, innit?

    Thank you! I don't know, I don't think I get paid for like, six months. But that's okay. I didn't even know they were a paying market.

    Congratulations! What a thrill... and money too!
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    love leaves a memory no one can steal....

    Good job, YOU! Way to go Ma'am. Proud of you.
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    Congrats Ma'am, well done! Champers all round I'll check out Forge.


    I've just had a piece published by Flash Fiction Magazine. Didn't get paid, but that's okay - it's about exposure for me at the moment.

    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
    - Rainer Maria Rilke, "Elegy I"

    Congratulations! That provides some confirmation that you're on the right track with your writing. Plus, it's $60!

    Nice job! I just submitted my novel (which was a semifinalist at the Chanticleer Book Review 'Clue Awards') to the Cabell First Novelist Award. If I win that, I will receive $5,000 and get to do readings at VCU in Richmond. Now that would be nice
