Waiting: Over!

I received two pieces of good news this week. An embarrassment of riches.
#1: I was selected to go to London next May with the Study Abroad program.
#2: My collection of short stories was accepted by a publisher. I received an email, so it feels slightly unreal, but I trust the author of said email, so I believe in it. But it will feel more real when I get a letter or a contract.
Now I will drink coffee and steep in my good news.

As I already directly noted, this is the best news ever. Your book is amazing. FC2 is amazing. You can hang with all the very cool kids now. I love Michael Martone! And the rest of the good team. I am so happy!

Yet two more reasons why you are my new idol. Congratulations. I can't wait to purchase your book, and then drop your name in conversation: "You know, the fiction writer, Dr. Write? I totally know her."
