Saplings accepted!

My short story "Saplings" was just accepted by MindFlights! ... well, actually it was accepted almost two weeks ago, and my email system very kindly decided not to deliver it. Grr.

The sale more than makes up for Earthlink being obnoxious, though.

The best way I can describe "Saplings" is to call it an action(ish) fantasy story about an herbalist with nanny powers and the abduction of one of her charges. And evil trees.

Grats! As always, you're doing quite well in the acceptance department!

Congratulations!

I think you're going to have to give up the earthlink account for submissions and use the gmail account. It is a pain having more than one account, but it does keep things tidy. :)

Thanks. :-)

I'd only be able to do that if I could alter the way Outlook works ... right now, it keeps no record of my sent email, and for submissions, that's not workable.

You don't need to use outlook to access gmail, you can use your browser. And it has a nifty function called conversations so it groups the original email and all replies including your replies together in one spot.

Lindsey Duncan said...

Yes, but I *want* to use Outlook so it's on my computer ... ;-)

There might be a way to do it, though.

Update: found the setting. So I can actually do it. Ha.
