Yes--I'm accepted! :)
It doesn’t sound like I’ll be able to post many of my past stories, since they don’t meet their requirements, but I will be able to post “The Weight of Power”, at least. I’m not 100% about what else I will be able to archive—just sent back an e-mail asking for clarifications—so we shall see. It’s exciting in any case.
Oh, I must mention one thing, I found very encouraging in the acceptance e-mail. It said, “I [Nilmandra] do know several people who are reading your current story and have recommended it for SoA…” Wow, let me give a heart-felt thanks to those “several people” whoever you are! I appreciate the recommendation very, very much.
Since it does't appear that I'll be able to archive everything on SOA, I think I will start polishing and uploading stories to N&N as well. It will be nice to belong to a site where the staff actually care about your opinion, and respond to e-mails... (Michelle's terrific about both. ;)
Well, in celebration, I have two random (but hopefully interesting) things to post. Firstly, a music video for Josh Groban’s song “Don’t Give Up (You are Loved)". Everyone else has probably heard it (I’m always way behind on newly released music), but if you haven’t, you really should. :) Here’s the link for that: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ls7ila3srzI
And, here’s something neat that was sent through on the Aragorn Angst mailing list: http://www.bookblog .net/gender/ genie.html --- the “Gender Genie” analyzes your writing and tells you (supposedly) whether or not your style is more male or female. Kind of neat. (Apparently, from the part of my writing that I tested, I do write like a girl. *g*)
Heh, and yes, I realize neither of those links have anything to do with my post, or each other... LOL. Beginning to see where I got my nickname? *bg*
