Another Sale and a Write-a-thon Update!

 I met Jeremy Zimmerman in Kansas when I did the short fiction workshop with the CSSF.  When he started Mad Scientist Journal, I thought to myself, "What a cool idea!  I’ll have to write him a story!"  He accepted a story by my wonderful friend Katy Board, but I just couldn’t think of anything, and I was busy writing other things.  Then, he posted a call for classified ads to run in the anthology.  I was all over that.  I wrote one, and I got most of my writing group to write some, too.  And as I reported yesterday, he accepted it.  

He also asked me if I’d be interested in writing a story for the anthology’s "fiction" section.  Something mad scientists would read for fun.  So, I did that.  And he accepted it!  So, I’m going to have a short story and a flash classified ad in the anthology.  I have to say, I’m pretty excited about it.  

In other news, I wrote a new story today!  That puts me up to 5 in 3 weeks.  It’s not too late to support my Write-a-thon efforts!
