I was beginning to sweat.
I've had one or more pieces of fiction published every month* beginning August 2003 and continuing through December 2006...except I had nothing published yet this month.
Until a few minutes ago.
I received an e-mail from the editor of a weekly publication letting me know I had a story in this week's issue.
That's 41 consecutive months. Does Ed Hoch have a rearview mirror? Can he see me in it yet?
*I use a publication's cover date, not its actual on-sale date to calculate this stuff.
