Celebrate the Small Things-November 10, 2017

It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain! Tonja Drecker and I are her co-hosts.

I got some great news regarding one of my short stories this week.  Near the end of August, I submitted a short story called "Becoming Death's Personal Assistant" to for an anthology called Normal Deviation.  The premise of the anthology intrigued me.  The guidelines required us to use the chosen photo as inspiration, come up with three story ideas, get rid of the first two, and write a story based on the third idea.  I did just that, and I found out this week that my story was selected for publication in the anthology!  I'm definitely excited about this one.

I also got a lot more writing done on my untitled novel in progress.  I'm nearing the 20K mark, and I hope I can keep up my momentum.

We're also looking to buy a used car in the next week or so.  We have the funds to buy something decent.  I'm just hoping to find something good in our price range.  Wish me luck on that!

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. Congratulations!
    Good luck with the car shopping. New or used, it's always an ordeal.

  2. Congrats! Just the title alone interests me.

  3. Congratulations on your story being chosen for publication! Very exciting indeed. Car shopping can be fun. I hope you find the prefect one.

  4. Congratulations on the story! I need to find out where you guys get information for all these anthologies. :)

    That aside, I have nothing in particular that I'm celebrating, but it's never bad to just enjoy the day.

  5. Congratulations on the short story! And here's wishing you a perfect car find—cheap yet perfect.
