I cannot for the life of me now remember when I sent stories for consideration to the Philippines Graphic. (Well, I can check my Sent Items folder, but I’m lazy.) It felt like a long time ago. Like late 2008. Maybe I’m just impatient, but around the first week of this month I decided to send them a letter saying that I’m withdrawing all of my pending submissions, unless they’ve been accepted/rejected. You know, so I can finally sit down with my stories and tell them what’s what.
Then this morning:

Please inform Eliza Victoria ASAP that her story “Earthset” has been accepted for publication in Graphic. Thanks.
Please inform ASAP Eliza A. Victoria that her story “Hotel” will also be used in future issue of Graphic. Thanks.
That is Ms Lanot’s name, right? I’m not hallucinating? o.O
I’m not. She was my professor in my Film & Lit class.
This is lovely. :)
I’ll link the stories once they’re up.
