I feel like dreaming....

For those of you who have made writing your profession, could you tell us about the moment you realized that you could quit your day job?

For example, Stephen King talks about getting the phone call from his agent and making his agent repeat (over and over) the amount of money his first book was making. I believe he was living in a trailer at the time and working in a laundry mat.

I'd love to hear your moments of success!!
