Pending Magick

I am happy to report that Blink-Ink has agreed to publish one of the tiniest pieces of fiction I have ever written.  It was only 55 words.  Did I hear your jaw hit the table?

It really takes some serious meditation to summon the Muse, then chain her to 55 words.  She was not thrilled, but she delivered anyway.  I gave her lots of chocolate, so she was happy enough when she departed.

And, because rejections (no matter how gentle) still outnumber acceptance letters, I wanted to share this acceptance with you.

Hello Michael. We are pleased to take 'The Magick' for our next issue of Blink.
Please provide a postal mailing address for your comp copy.
Thank you, and congratulations 

And that was it.  But that was enough.

If you are writing and struggling, keep on truckin'.  It will happen.
