I had all but given up on the whole paid writer thing, and I'll be honest, the check was, um, for five bucks, but still. It's the principal of the thing. The really sad part is we were so dead broke this week we actually ran to the bank to deposit it. It's been one of those fun, let's-pretend-we're-in-college-and-eat-ramen weeks.
Here's to all the writer's out there. Keep at it! One day, you too might get five bucks in the mail and feel like a million. (By the way, if you are already super successful and have a million wanna give me a erm fellowship or something? Was worth a try... On the whole being broke thing, does anyone else wonder where all the money went? Is there like an island of billionaire's laughing at all of us?)
