Me Literate

So remember I told you that I submitted a short story for publication? Yeah, well, for some reason they thought it was good enough to buy. I guess I’m a real fiction writer now.

I got my check in the mail today. It’s a small amount, but that’s not the point; the fact that someone thought the ideas in my head that I scribbled into a computer were good enough to buy and share is a nice ego boost. I can’t decide if I want to cash the check or frame it and hang it on the wall. Then, when I hit the big time, I can be all like “thanks for coming to visit and solicit writing advice, Stephen King. Would you like to see the first check I ever got? Follow me, it’s in the museum wing.”

The story will be available online when it is released, and I will be sure to link to it. It’s very short, so you’ll barely have to spend any time to pretend that you care. Also, I emphasize that the story has almost nothing at all to do with polar bears.

P.S. Oh look, Raymi posted another of my works of creative genius.

    If you get your dong pierced, you have to post photos. I don’t really want to see your wang but that’s the way these things work.
