That's right! I got my first acceptance!
My short story Shipwreck that I posted in April was accepted at flashquake, an online publication, for their Summer issue. It will be online from June 1st through the end of August and I'll post a link as soon as it's up.
In addition to finally having a writing credit to include in my upcoming query letter to agents, I get a CD of the issue AND five dollars!
Six editors vote on submissions and they included their comments in my email. The three that said something beyond "Yes" or "Maybe" said the following: "Engaging", "Beautiful, magical story", and "Nicely told".
I know this isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it certainly made me jump up and dance!
