My first check!

My first check for writing has arrived in the mail!  This is for my short story, “The Meaning of Vengeance,” and no, I can’t quit my job and become a full-time author, based on the amount.  But when Dreamspinner asked how I wanted to be paid, I chose to have a check sent in the mail, specifically because I wanted the moment I had last night — me walking through the door and Erich saying, “Here!  This will cheer you up!” as he hands me my first advance.

I almost don’t want to cash it.  But of course, I will.  Maybe we’ll go out to dinner.
