Hey Mum, I did it

A dream came true yesterday. An ambition. I sold a story to Black Static, a magazine I've been trying to get into since before it existed (those who've been around the small press for a while will remember its previous incarnation The Third Alternative). At a rough estimate it took me about eighteen years. Hopefully it won't take me more than a decade to sell another story to them.*
The Drop of Light and the Rise of Dark is my first completed story this year.

In extra good news. Damien Angelica Walters also had a story accepted there yesterday.

*Resists sending another story to Andy today.

Ooh, that's fantastic. I nearly got into TTA myself, but didn't. Many congrats.

That is awesome news, and it just goes to how what good taste those Black Static bods have. Postscript and Black Static... I'm not jealous. Yeah, right.

Congratulations, Black Static is on my writerly bucket list as well :)
