It arrived...my first royalty check.
Do you know what this means?
It means, I wrote something that ended up in a bound book.
People bought the book.
Money from the book sales went into that big capitalistic machine.
And it spit out a check...well, eight separate checks.
Now, the amount of the check is not overwhelming, nor did our book reach the New York Times bestseller list.
But I don't care!
I mean, I do care--sure, I'd love to have many more zeros on the check and have it reach every library in the the nation, but I'm not letting those little things damper my spirits.
It arrived...my first royalty check. What a great thing is this!
