Hoorah...

I know I’ve just posted a short story, The Window, which I hope many of you will read, enjoy and comment on. But I just had to share this bit of good news. I’ve been successful in having another short story, titled: James’ Mojo, published with UNMADEUP. I’m totally stoked... chuffed... deliriously happy (lol)! Well, I hope you’ll visit the link and have a read. Anyway, Happy Reading!

Catherine- as a writer there is a tremedous rush with an acceptance letter to have your work published. As I read your post, I too felt the electricity. I am happy for you! Celebrate.

congrats! I just read the story, quite moving and sad, devastating read

CathM said...

@Lorenzo: Cheers! This definitely calls for a LARGE drink and I’m already ready for my next published literary 'rush’ (hee hee)!

@Lissa: Thanks for reading ‘James’ Mojo’. Yes – a very true story. Inspired by a good friend of mine when I was a student at Virginia Commonwealth University studying for my first degree. It’s the first time I’ve written about it. So – very rewarding to have the work published.

Catherine, I want to come say thanks for your comment on my blog. I see congratulations are in order too. Yay!

I wanted to also say that God is the Master Repairer of all things broken. He loves brokenness and a broken spirit because that is when His magic really begins. That is when we cling to Him and we give Him the open door to do with us as HE wishes. May you find such healing and joy as the Father repairs your brokenness.
In Him,
Paula
