I Did It!!!

I really needed something to cheer me up after being stuck under the covers with a nasty cold, and yesterday I got exactly that.
I sold my first piece!! The Norwegian magazine Cupido sent me an email late last night to tell me that they want to buy my story! Erotic short stories is something that I do as a sort of hobby to let my thoughts drift and clean my head a bit, and now I’m actually getting paid for one of them!
I can’t believe I’m going to see one of my fictional stories in print, signed with my name for the first time!! For some it might just be an erotic short story, but for me this is the beginning. Another piece of motivation to write even more. To submit more of my short stories, not just erotica but other types of magazines and competitions.
My top priority is to work on my novel of course, but sometimes a writer needs a little break and some space from the big project and at times like that a short story or a poem is perfect as a diversion while still keeping the creative writing juices flowing!
I will let you guys know when the magazine is up for grabs 🙂
And while I wait, my smile and motivation has grown a little bigger!

    From one author to another, even though we don’t know each other, congratulations! That’s a huge deal.
