A Milestone For Me

Just a short post to confess that today, for the first time ever, I submitted two pieces of my fiction to a publisher.  I have no delusions about book tours or signings happening any time soon. :)  I'm just excited I've finally done this.

RYN: Yes, there is comfort in sameness, but there is also boredom if you are me. I sometimes need to remind myself that sameness is ok stuff. :)
