This past week has been full of surprises. First, I was offered the position as the Managing Editor of AnthologyBuilder
. I'm very excited, as I've always hoped to gain experience in the field. I've been editing the works of my friends and peers for years, and I'm always game to read a short story or ten.... thousand. I'm also looking forward to meeting the many authors and artists that AB is currently bringing together. I've noticed a few new watchers on my LJ profile. Please feel free to introduce yourselves! I don't bite... ;)
On top of that news, we heard back from the sellers of a home we put a bid on over two weeks ago. They went through our offer, and we're now in negotiations. Before the week is out we may (hopefully) be in escrow! It would be lovely to have a home of our own, though hectic for a while!
On Saturday I discovered that I received a Daily Deviation (a feature on the main page of the art website, DeviantArt) on my photograph, Hope
. Over 1000 messages in the space of a day! After years of struggling to carve out some sort of creative niche, I feel a bit overwhelmed. And honored and thrilled at the same time. It's nice to get a bit of recognition now and then. So now I can say I've had my fifteen minutes of web fame.
