Hey Gang,

I'm happy to say, I'm finally published and paid (not much)! But, hey, it's official and it's enough to buy my family lunch.

Now, in the eyes of my husband, I am officially a writer.

Thanks for letting me share.

Lunch for a family of three or six? Catered or McDonald's? Just kidding, I'm waiting for my first payment, too. I can't wait. I may not even cash the cheque -- I'll frame it and hang it on the wall.

Congrats! Who cares how much $ it is? I'd rather be paid a fraction of my week's wage for something I love and crafted with respect and excitement, than the week's wage for the job that's just a job.

Fantastic.

Always so nice when hubby becomes a believer, isn't it?

Congratulations! I know the feeling right well. When my first book was published (albeit through a less-than-reputable house) my step-dad went from telling me to get a job to believing I had a job. Kinda cool, huh?

YogaMama, congratulations! I can celebrate with you, as my first article just sold this morning! I can relate to your comment about "in your husband's eyes", as I think my husband feels the same way!!

Hippy! What a great feeling!

Thanks for the kind words. They came at the perfect time. I told my very best friend the good news and she said all the right things. But I could tell she wasn't that thrilled.

So, I logged into the Water Cooler and got happy all over again. Thank You!
