story quarterly update

I got the acceptance e-mail back in February, and this morning I received an email from Story Quarterly Managing Editor Zac Roesch. They’re looking at a possible October publication, and:

We’re very excited to have your story for our forthcoming issue, and you might be pleased to know we’re submitting the journal to McSweeney’s Best American Nonrequired Reading 2010 once it’s off the press, among other Best Of’s for the year.

Very exciting news. Now, I’m just waiting for the edits to come in so I can approve them (or fight the editors, heh; no, I’m kidding I don’t usually do that) and the contract so I can sign it and send it back.

Now, what am I up to? I have a story idea in mind and I’m itching to see how it will shape up, but right now I’m enjoying having other people’s words fill up my head. Huzzah!
