I updated my submissions spreadsheet today when I received an acceptance letter for a story.
For the first time in ages, I counted how many stories I've published. 30. It's a nice round number. Sure, it pales in comparison to the 300 plus Kate Dominic can claim, or the 200 or so M. Christian has, but I'm happy with my 30. No. Not happy. Truly, deeply astonished and thrilled. Time for a happy dance.
