Saturday I got some very exciting news! I'm being published in Reader's Digest again. This is the third anecdote of mine that they have accepted, and since they say they get a quarter of a million submissions a year and only accept a few hundred, I'm pretty happy. Not to mention that they pay incredibly well, too! I'm not a Stephen King fan, but I do like his take on being a professional writer. He says that if you write something and get a check in the mail for it, that you can drive to the bank, deposit, and pay your rent with, then you are a professional writer. I don't really feel like a professional yet, but this along with some other successes I've had gives me hope that I could be someday. Thanks for letting me share my good news!
