Today I opened my email program and there was an announcement from Smashwords. I'd been paid $16.34 for my writing.
Okay, Smashwords isn't my biggest moneymaker. Heck, half of my stories haven't been distributed to other retailers (like Kobo, Diesel, Sony and Apple ... hmm ... should write to them and ask why).
But there's something magical about payday -- even if it is only $16.34 cents.
I'm going to go out and treat myself to something.
