If I manage to get published in THE GREATEST QUILTING MAGAZINE EVER only 9 months after I started quilting and writing about it, I will probably just fall right down and die from pure joy. It would also be the first thing I had ever published outside of work. (It doesn't really count when they publish you because you already work for them and they don't have to pay you extra for it.)
Of course, he clearly hasn't made a final decision yet, so there is still the very real possibility that the next email will say, "On second thought, this sucks ass." So I still have lots of hoping and praying and finger-crossing to do. And even if it doesn't work out (this time), I am still grateful to Cathy for kicking my butt into gear to submit something, and to all of you who read and comment here for giving me the confidence to keep writing.
