Hi, Gila!  Just wanted to let you know that my first flash piece, Bar Rag, was published by The Legendary (an online literary journal).  Less than a year after taking your course, not bad. ;)

Go here & click on 'Joyce Barton' link:  http://www.downdirtyword.com/fictionpage.html

(Or you can access it from the bio page: http://www.downdirtyword.com/authors/joycebarton.html )

Just wanted to say thanks again; your class helped me get started with flash, and now I'm on my way.

Hope you are well, and Happy New Year!
