Warp & Weave! ...yay?

Dear Austin,

I want to thank you for submitting your work for publication in the Warp and Weave magazine. I am pleased to inform you that we will be publishing "It's a Jungle in Here" and "The Good Luck Charm" in our next issue, which will be online so as to reach a wider audience. We would like you to read your work at the Warp and Weave launch on April 17 in SC 213a. The launch will be held from 7 to 9 and there will be refreshments provided. Please bring a friend or two.
Congratulations for your fine accomplishment.

Sincerely,
Warp & Weave Faculty Advisor

As I said back here, I submitted 2 short stories I wrote to the school's speculative fiction magazine. As the faculty advisor said up there, they both were accepted.

Last night when I found out I was ecstatic, though now that the dust has settled etc. I'm a bit lackluster, as it'll be posted online, which means no hard copies, which means they can include all they want without worrying about printing costs, which means they probably weren't as exclusive in choosing entries. But, that's the negative jerk voice in my head (I don't know who the heck invited him in there in the first place) so I'm staying positive. And at least they didn't say "Though we are publishing online and therefore taking any submissions with 1/2 a brain, yours just doesn't have half a brain." So, I'm still excited, just not quite as much as I would have been. :)
