The Blog of a Modest Star

I'm amazing.

I thought you all deserved to know that. Not only have I just crept over the 46,000 word mark in my NaNoWriMo project (gets down onto her knees and begs the Plot God to give her enough ideas to make it through to 50,000) but during this merry month of novel writing I also managed to find the time to write a flash story.

A break for applause.

Anyhow, said story 'The Marionette Manipulator & the Headless Bride' (ooh, maybe if I make the chapter titles really long in Theatre I can get to the end today) has been accepted by 52 Stitches.

I've got to stop applauding myself, my hands hurt.

Cheers, Barry :)

You're making the rest of us look bad. Don't worry, I forgive you ; )

Jamie Eyberg said...

I wish to bask in the glow that is your awesomeness. (I am cheating today and am writing a short story for fun. I might get back to the book this afternoon, right after I send Byron the vampire to the dentist.) :)

Congrats on the acceptance, you are a machine, the sort that writes, kind of like a typewriter only with your own ideas, a robot if you will, only not an evil robot a la the cybermen. Um, never mind, let's just leave it at congrats.

Hahahaha, no no no, keep on keepin' on! You are rocking Nano as expected, and congrats on the acceptance.

I agree with Barry. Your titles are the best!

Rob Brooks said...

I wish my titles could compare to yours--mine are usually just one word and boring. Anyways, congrats on the acceptance. You really are amazing.

Catherine J Gardner said...

I am glad that everyone agrees I am awesome. Okay, off to kill someone (character speaking of course).

Jamie Eyberg said...

Why only a character?

jonathan pinnock said...

Woo! I am seriously impressed. I feel very lazy.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Jamie, because I'm the non violent type. :)

Jonathan, that's because you are.

Brenda said...

Congrats on NaNo and your new flash story...

Applaud...applaud...applaud...grin

Jodi Lee said...

Congrats on the acceptance, Cate! Applaud away... I'm sure you can't hear me from over here, so do some from me, too. ;)

I am so jealous of your word count.

You are awesome - if only you were going to be in Portland over the holidays - you'd get a family four-pack of tickets to see A Christmas Carol - maybe someone in your area is offering a prize - check it out.

And keep going - you still have a week.

Carrie Harris said...

Yay! And seriously. You need to start a title company. Because I'd like to hire you.

Congrats on the sale! Nice work! And I am so very, very jealous.

Well, you found me out.
