Well done, Joe!  :)
There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present (unknown)

Money cannot buy happiness but somehow, it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes Benz than it is on a bicycle.

Thanks. This one really had me stressing. After the editor sent the story back for a rewrite, he said
he wasn't sure if it was possible to make the story clearer without giving away the ending or stilting the
atmosphere. If not, they would've had to say no. 40 words later he said yes.  :)

Great job both Walkio & Joe!  I love hearing success stories - they are inspirational   :D

Thanks, Powerball and Silt.

Just got another acceptance from Twisted Dreams Magazine. The story's name is Come All to the River of Death, and I didn't
evendare to put it up here in MWC. Too gross. :D  The story will be in their February issue, as the August one is already filled.

That's great Joe. Do you count that as one of next year's successes or one of this year's? ;D

 ;D ;D ;D How could I forget it . . .  and by the way it's not 'gross', perhaps a touch ghoulish and gruesome -- certainly gripping! :D

I'm about three weeks away from finishing the step sheet for my 1st novel. I really have to start
writing less short stories, but I can't help it. I think as soon as I actually start writing the novel,
the short story ideas will cool off a bit.  :)
