I made it, with almost 26 hours to spare. My 52nd acceptance of the year. That's an average of one a week (one-a-week was my goal this year as it has been for several years).

Alas, it's a short article about writing requested and accepted by a non-paying market.

Maybe tomorrow's mail will bring that year-ending 53rd sale that'll knock me out of my socks.

Michael -

Since this was anything but an ordinary year for you, think it's amazing that you made your usual quota of "sales" ... even if this one was less than thrilling.

You might have to wait for the first year of January to tally a real total. Seems like lots of publishers don't mail checks dated in December until it's past time to toast the new year.

Wishing you the very best of HEALTH, happiness, and productivity in 2009!

Barring some abnormal event, my total will lock in at midnight and I'll start the count over for next year.
