I had a different "f" post in mind today, but I scrapped those plans when I received word this morning that I've had an article accepted for publication!! This will be my first paid credit, and I'm excited beyond words.
The article that was accepted is about a wonderful lady I met through Circle Tail, and her hearing dog. It means so much to me to have this article as my first acceptance, as I like this lady so much, and I'm thrilled to actually be paid to write about an animal. It's not a lot of money, and I certainly can't quit my day job, but I can honestly say that this is the best money I've ever earned.
I've been bouncing off the walls ever since getting the news, and I feel like a little kid at Christmas and every other holiday rolled into one. Being paid for something I've written is a dream come true, and I'm thankful to everyone who has provided encouragement and advice as I've started down this path.
Now I think I've stopped bouncing enough to catch up on my blog reading! :)
