One of my short stories has been accepted for publication by the literary journal, Minerva Rising.  Just when I was about to give up!

I have had two stories published in online journals, and that's nice, but it's nothing like actually seeing your work in print.  (AND getting paid a small amount for it!)

I have been trying to get my three favorite short stories into print for a couple of years. I've spent a lot of time on these stories and I love them.  I believe they deserve to be in print, but the constant stream of rejection notices caused me doubt. I gave up working on new stories because it seemed so pointless. Perhaps the constant rejection was a sign from the universe that I am really not much of a short story writer after all.  But now I am inspired to polish up those other two stories and send them out there once again.  And maybe even get back to work on some new ones.
