    It's finally time to spill the beans on my good mood :p

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Torana, May 18, 2008.

    This morning I woke after not much sleep, and my mood sucked...I was tired. I thought log on here, check emails, post a bit, wait for my loaf to come online and my mood would get better.

    But...

    In checking my email I found an email from a publisher I sent a poem off to...I thought...here we go, another rejection. Just what I needed. But after 5 minutes of deciding whether to open it or not and have my mood killed off. I'd just open it and get it over with.

    When I opened the email I squeeled with excitement. They had accepted my poem for publication in the online magazine.

    SO finally, after all my hard work and dedication to my writing and trying to get published. My horror valentine poem, is finally being published. I am so very excited and just want to scream out loud --

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I AM FINALLY BEING PUBLISHED!

    Sorry reallly excited :p lol

    Foxy thank you. It is so exciting, I am still in a state of dis-belief I think....just put the contract through.......^ ^

    Dan, thank you Hun. I know you didn't, and thank you for all your support. It means the world to me.

    Bick, thank you sweetness. You made me blush hehehe

    I can't post the poem up, it will void the contract. But I can provide the link once it appears in the magazine for you to have a look at if you wish.

    Gone thanks heaps. LOL yeah I was really excited, still am but calmed down a lot now lol But thank you so much. I worked hard for this.

    TheWalken, thanks. And I agree, there is a lot of poorly written published poetry out there, I won't say mine is better than anyone else's work, because it isn't. Though I will say, my style of writing is much different to others...

    Charisma, thank you so much. I'll post up a link as soon as it is the magazine is out and a link to my author page as well :) thank you heaps.

    Rumpole, again, thank you so much :)

    lessa, thank you ever so much. It means a lot to me.

    serendipity, thank you. It is really nice of you to say that. I really appreciate it.

    Thank you :)
