And last night after dinner, I pulled up the Facebook download and prepared "Facebook Cat" to send to the magazine editor. I had about 4500 unedited words from several months' worth of entries about Larisa, and they got reduced to 998 words (1000-word publication maximum). I sent the piece off by email. I have no idea whether it will be accepted for publication, but that's okay. It has more of a chance having been sent off.
I get to try new things these days. I love it!
