Acceptances, hurrah, and speed, or not.

I had two acceptances yesterday. First time I have had two in one day, quite a lovely feeling.

The first was astonishingly quick. I subbed something, and 35 minutes later received an acceptance.

The second took rather longer. I subbed the piece in April, received a query about it in June, and an acceptance yesterday.

I am delighted about both, and as it came just after a couple of form rejections it is all the more pleasant.

I won't tell you where just yet. I like to wait until something is actually published before whoo hoo-ing.

Well, let me whoo-hoo for you! Yay! If you won't tell us where, at least tell us - are these publications you've never been pubbed in? Great news.... did Duotrope help? ;)

Hey Sarah, good on you.
And I can relate to your caution...

Tania - no, duotrope did NOTHING! To answer the question, yes, one I have been in before, and it is ACENESS, and the other is new to me.

Jo - Cheers lovely!

Lane - Yup, caution always best I reckon.
