    Congratulations, as someone else here said this moves you from being a writer to being an author, no small feat.

    Honestly, half of me is dying to just scream and dance like a madwoman, and the other half of me is too stunned to believe it. :D The magazine is set to come out in January, and I'm hoping and praying nothing changes before then!!!

    So I just had to share my good news. I can't explain how much this means to me!!!
    Heck with waking up everybody! Go ahead. It's so great that you got accepted! I'll have to try and find this. I have some Aussie friends who might be able to find it for me. Congratulations. I'm sure it will be the first of many articles that will be accepted. :)

    So very happy for you! I had some of my poetry published several years ago and believe me there is nothing like an acceptance letter in the mail! Well, almost nothing! LOL

    Congratulations---you are now no longer just a writer but an AUTHOR!!!! I always say, "Almost anyone can be a writer but it takes being published to become and author."

    Congratulations!!! Wow, I am so happy for you. This really is a dream come true. I have always wanted to write a children's book and have had lots of encouragement to do so. One day..... keep us up to date.
