First fiction sale! 
12th-Apr-2008 05:24 am

It's been a good week, chock full of writing goodness. I wrote two first drafts (a flash and a short) and started on a third. I polished up the flash piece and submitted it earlier today. Twenty-six minutes later I received an acceptance from Static Movement. My story, "That's Just How I Roll", will be published in their May issue.

Not a pro sale, but a sale nonetheless. A milestone and motivator. This is something I've been working towards seriously over the past year. While the story I sold today was less than a week old, I have to give thanks to all of the workshoppers, beta readers and loved ones who gave me their valuable feedback and encouragement. I would not be where I'm at today without each of you.

They paid you money for it, that's a sale! Awesome! I got my first sale back in January to Flash Fiction Online, a nifty place.

Congratulations! Keep on trucking!

Hey, I've got a story there this April and one going in May. I didn't know it was a paying site. I didn't get crap. How much did they pay you?

It isn't a paying site. I didn't mean to imply otherwise. Sorry if there was some confusion.

Oh. I'm sorry. I thought you "made a sale." I noticed you said it wasn't professional. I think you meant you "placed a story." But you say potato and I say potatoe. At times like this we all need to get together for a group hug, slap each other on the back, and say, "CONGRATULATIONS!"

The editor at Static Movement, Chris, runs a TOP-NOTCH e-zine that kicks ass, and I am as excited as you for being in it.
