Publication from an unexpected angle

Woohoo! At TheNextBigWriter.com, my short memoir piece "I Ought to Send That Bitch a Thank-You Note" was chosen as one of the ten to go into the My Writing Life book project, which the site is putting together. I don't know much about the book yet, but it sounds like the kind of thing that wouldn't look too bad on the CV.

Some of you got to read the piece here on my LJ, but I've had to lock the entry, since I'll be signing a contract giving the online publishing rights to TNBW. If you didn't see it, it basically said, "I started writing novels as 12-year-old in a jealous snit, and my early works were laughably bad, but in the intervening two decades I've learned a few useful tips on the craft, such as 'Don't quit your day job.'"

In any case, it was a lovely surprise and a nice birthday present to boot. (I'm about to turn 33. Give me virtual chocolate and picspam!)
