Published on Thaumatrope

I just got a story accepted on Thaumatrope, to be published April 12th. Yeah, Easter. I'm pretty excited about that, and I got paid a whole $1.20 for it. You can subscribe to the e-zine here.

So does this make me a professional writer now?

Wait, why are they taking four months to publish a 120-character story?.
Not to take anything away from your accomplishment - congratulations!

140 characters. 120 cents.

I can think of two possible reasons: (1) it's an Easter story, and they're publishing it on Easter and (2) they get a lot of submissions but only publish a couple of stories a day, so they may be booked out to April.

(1) is true for sure. (2) wouldn't surprise me. I've got a couple of other stories to submit to them. If they get published too, it should give us an idea of how true (2) is. I'll let you know.

Yes - it's a paying gig! You were a writer before, now you are an author.

Congratulations and Happy Christmas.

That's great news! Who cares if it's a buck twenty! That's more than I can put to my creative writing career.

I got another one accepted, due to be published in August. So I guess not only are they booked far out, but my Easter story may have been slipped in for the holiday. Cuz it's just that good, right?

Totally right:)
