OK.... this has nothing to do with being organized, but I just had a short story accepted by a very small press literary mag. Not really a big deal to anyone but me... but this is the first thing I've every had accepted for publication.

It will come out in February 2009, I'm told. And my payment is the grand sum of NOTHING.

This thing probably has a press run of about 10 magazines, and the only people who probably get them are people with work published there who want to send them to their grandmothers, but... still. They don't accept everything, I think their acceptance rate is something like 30%, which is really high, but still not, like, 100%, you know?

Anyway, it's my first thing, hopefully the first of several.
