Another story accepted!

So I followed a friend's advice about writing a short based on a novel I'd written for Nanowrimo in 2009. And the publishing company I submitted it to liked it and wants to include it in an anthology for stories that embrace the horror cliche, stories along the lines of "Shaun of Dead."

Well, mine was basically a blonde version of that, I guess you could say. It was a continuation of my original story. Kind of a sequel. Perhaps I can churn out a bunch of shorts with this character in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse.

And after submitting two more stories today, I'm already on the hunt for my next one. Taking on this Write 1 Sub 1 challenge has accomplished exactly what I wanted: writing is now part of my daily life.

I think I can now officially call myself a writer and author.

Yahoo! Great news indeed--and just the kind of participant response to W1S1 we want to see.

Thanks for commenting over on my blog and congrats on all the W1S1 work!

Speaking of what happens after the zombie apocalypse, have you read ALLISON HEWITT IS TRAPPED? Horror/humor, humor/horror. :)

Bravo!!! Keep riding that momentum! (and I love Shaun of the Dead, by the way, so your "blond" version of the story sounds very cool)
