On Monday two wonderful things happened.
The first involved a hospital appointment. Not to go into too much detail but I’m happier now because of it.
The second was the fact I passed my Level 3 Business Administration NVQ. Six months work condensed into three weeks and a pass at the end of it? Yeah. I couldn’t be more chuffed.
Then today something even more wonderful and strange happened. Last Thursday I threw caution to the wind and submitted a story for an anthology. The Not Quite Shakespeare, UK Anthology to be precise. I actually submitted it after putting myself through the mill about submitting it.
Today I heard something back.
And yep, it got accepted. Like accepted for real. Like oh shit on a stick it’s going to be published accepted.
So yes. My first ever published short story will be out on the 2nd June 2014. It stars Josef and Will and a theatre.
I’m off now to scream inside a room where no one can hear me.
Like for the next hour.
