    Haha. Congrats. Looks like you can't miss at the moment. I considered trying to submit to joyful! once, but decided I probably needed more of a soul to be successful.

    Ha! Short, humorous, and straight to the point.

    Well done, Terry, and good to see you getting published on multiple fronts.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks all! The piece was inspired by a writing excercise on another forum: To Write about a lonely number.

    It was something new I'd never tried before.

    Hah, loved it Terry. Well done once more!

    I read the guidelines for submission on Joyful! - I was very surprised at how relaxed the formatting expectations were. I guess the editor likes to do it?

    Ashleigh,

    Actually, the no indents/blank line between paragraphs is a good initial format as that is what most easily translates from a word processing document to paste for submission to placing it online (after edits if any are needed).

    Yeah I can understand that. I just thought that in comparison to most formatting requirements from other fiction publishing magazines/anthologies, they didn't seem to be too picky.

    Yep, in that sense you're right on the mark.
