Today, for the first time in my life, someone paid me for what I wrote. The pay is tinier than the victory, but I'm so excited. This was my first ever freelance article, and it was accepted with no revisions. I honestly thought no one would ever pay for anything I write, so I can't describe how happy this silly 200 word article makes me. :D

That's fantastic - congratulations!

I hope you're going to do something to celebrate? :D

Thanks, guys! :) :) :)

Sadly, no celebrating tonight, but I'm going to do something with my mom over the weekend. (She's the only person who knows I write IRL.) But for now, I'm treating myself to cookies. :tongue

I've had the derpiest grin on my face all morning. :D

Congratulations. Enjoy your cookies.:D

Thank again, everyone. This is why I love AW. :heart:

Will we get a link to the article later? :D Congrats!

Haha, I don't even have the link yet. The client didn't provide one, but I'm going to message them later to see if they'll send it to me. They only accepted it a few hours ago, so it might not even be up yet! :Jump:

Sometimes the smallest victories are the most important, so don't feel like it's insignificant just because it's small. :) Congrats!

Totally cool. To me this is a big victory. Don't spend it all in one place.

CGs and many more (even bigger) paychecks!

Thanks everyone! I've been so depressed and was honestly about this close to giving up on writing. Since I currently hate my book with the fire of a thousand Bunsen burners, this couldn't have come at a better time. :)

And just to be obnoxious about it, thanks again. This support system is what makes AW so special to me.

I think it would harder to find a place where I could spend it and not have to use another payment method to cover the remainder of the bill! :ROFL:
