"Dear Amanda-

Thank you for your submission to poeticdiversity. I would like to use "Doug Needed a Smoke," in our August issue.

I would like to suggest a couple of minor changes, if you are amenable. Below is a proof of your story. Please let me know if this meets with your satisfaction.

Your work is very tender and the combo. Your bio is fabulous too.


Marie Lecrivain
executive editor

Hahaha...I'm seriously sitting in my school computer lab unable to contain my joy. I just had to share this awesome news with you guys. Thanks so much for supporting me and helping me edit my work. I don't think I would be half of where I am now if it wasn't for you guys.

Also, I wanted to say I am going to take the story off of here just out of respect to the publisher until it's finished it's run through the magazine. The version I have now with Marie's edits have really made it amazing and I hope you guys all check it out in's definitely a few levels better than before. =D

Thanks again all rock.

Yay for you!!
Well done Darkshine :D Congratulations and laurels all around.

Just don't forget us little people when you and Stphen King are comparing typing speed ;)

May you never thirst

Not surprised. Your poetry is good, but especially good as of late. The title of this soon-to-be-published piece sounds familiar, but I don't remember the details. You'll have to direct me to a link or something so I can read it. Congrats.

To The Victor Belong The Spoils!
That's fantastic Darkshine...I'm always so happy to see you all succeed! You've come a long way from where you were a year ago. If you have a dream...FOLLOW IT!

so glad to hear it, DS. way to frickin' go.

hope their changes were okay with you. sometimes editors can be bruuuutal (says the editor).

All I can say is thank you (again) to all of you for your shared excitement. I will always be thankful for you guys. =D

And ark...she wasn't brutal at all. I'm stubborn as hell and would probably not have gone for that. She pretty much cleaned up some oversights on my part. I didn't know you were an editor...
