Y is for Yes

source
It finally happened... an editor wants to publish my work. It's not the very first "yes" but it's the first one that will lead to a paycheck (small though it might be).

One of my non-fiction articles is going to be published in Boys' Quest magazine. (In 2012.)

It's amazing how one little "yes" brightens the bio section of a cover/query letter and gives that little push to keep writing. 

What keeps you going?

    At the moment this Challenge keeps me going :)

    Otherwise it's growing crops and grandchildren. Perhaps exploring new possibilities later...
