Me: "Guess what? GUESS WHAT?! I'm going to be published! I got into that anthology!"
Steve: "That's great, well done. Hey, did you ring the tiler?"
Abbey: "Mummy, I need to do wee on the toilet."
Life goes on here as usual, with my husband who really is excited for me (on the inside) and my toddler who is just going about her day.
Meanwhile, I'm jumping up and down with joy. A short story of mine has been selected as part of the 100 Stories for Queensland charity anthology. This marks my first piece of fiction to be published and, with a release date of March 8th (yes, in four weeks time!), I don't have to wait long to see my name and my writing in that book. And to read all the other stories that were chosen - with a requirement or each to be happy and uplifting, it'll be a pleasure to read them.
I'll keep you posted as to where you can buy a copy (with all proceeds going to Queensland's flood victims) - and, of course, I'll remind you with my incessant excitement when it's released.
