[Queue “The Final Bell” from Rocky]
There were three things on my List of Things To Do Before I Die:
- Publish a science fiction story
- Fly in space
- Get my pilot’s license
I got my pilot’s license back in 2000. I still have a way to go before I fly in space. I have been writing stories and trying to get them published since January 1993–just over 14 years. Last night, I received word that one of my stories has been accepted for publication. After 14 years, 100 submissions and 30 stories, I have finally made my first sale!
I have posted about this in friends-only posts over the last several months and those of you who have read those can probably skip this.
