What makes a writer’s heart soar?

What makes a writer’s heart soar? An acceptance! And I have received one for a short story going into an anthology. More news coming on this soon, but know that I have a happy heart right now. Also, what makes me writer’s heart sing–I got to go to Karen White’s booksigning tonight at The Booksellers of Laurelwood.

Weekend wrap-up

This past weekend was FULL of good writing things.
