Today is the Day!

Goal accomplished! One story, published, at professional rates. The first of three I will need to publish in order to qualify to join the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Or I can join right away if I get a book published by a qualifying publisher.

But meanwhile, go! Read! Enjoy!

It's real! My first published story! My words, out in the world!

Level up! How many experience points for professional publication? Surely I’m a Level 2 writer by now. Maybe Level 3!

Today is the first of many milestones I have yet to achieve. Two more stories to join SFWA. Then, joining SFWA. Getting an agent. Then getting a book published. Getting a contract for multiple books from a major publisher. Getting a new tattoo to commemorate any of the above. Etc. Etc. Etc.

It’s a lifetime of achievements I look forward to making. But meanwhile, I will relish today.

And annoy the crap out of anyone who will listen.
