Paid Writer – Day 1

16 Aug

Well, I totally forgot today I was living on my writing (monopoly) money and went for a walk to CVS to buy myself a nice little soda and Peppermint Patty.

Immediately in debt 😦

But, so far today, I’ve earned $5 finishing a crit. Now, for my 2 hours of writing – there’s another $20, so at least I’m back in the black.

How was YOUR first day?

    Oh, that’s a really good idea! I’m afraid that I, too, would be in debt after a soda and a Peppermint Patty. How long are you going to live on your writing money?

    I’m going to try to make it to the end of the year and see where things stand. Spend less, write more! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for reminding me. I totally forgot I was getting paid today! I earned myself a big fat $50 for 5 hrs of editing my manuscript. That is $50 of my ‘A Christmas Story’ Monopoly money … bwhahahaha πŸ™‚
