I had a bit of good (great) news yesterday. A story I sent will be published! I'm so happy--it's my Christmas present for sure. I always get a gift out of the blue, and this is definitely it. It's for the new, shiny Vine Leaves Literary Journal which I believe comes out in January. I feel very lucky to be a part of the first lineup of writers. The funny thing is, I waited until the last minute to submit because I didn't think I had anything, but then I remembered a certain piece and sent it in real quick. Gotta love that. Anyway, I'll let you know when the first issue is released.

There's another story I sent in yesterday to a different journal, and I'm hoping it will get published as well. But two in a row would be way too generous for the universe. Or maybe not. I'll let the universe handle that.

Took the kids shopping. We went all over the place, with a nice break for lunch. They never acted bad, really. I'm proud of them. And I was kind of amazed how well I handled the whole day without losing it. The fact is, we had fun. No, it's not always fantastic being a parent, but I really do enjoy being with my kiddos. They're lovely little people and I am blessed. Do you hear that Santa? That's an official recommendation. Don't be stingy.


  1. Congratulations and fingers crossed for number two.

  2. Congrats on the acceptance and good luck on the other submission!

  3. I have a feeling that 2012 will be YOUR year. Well done Amy.

  4. Yay! So happy for you. What a nice Christmas present. Have a great holiday.
