Two good things:
One: I got an e-mail saying one of my short stories made the short list for publication in Black Rose magazine! If it makes the cut, it will be the first time I will be *paid* for a piece of writing.
Two: Getting closer to that trip back to Nebraska. I talked to Eric on the phone about setting a date for it while he was at work and we decided. All that’s left is getting a “yes” from his boss and buying the plane tickets.
