A Check!

   Being an older writer has its upsides.  I got a check for $125 today for my story on roadrunners which appeared in the March issue of Appleseeds.  I'd completely forgotten that they hadn't yet paid me!  Such a lovely surprise.  Next spring, I can hide my own Easter eggs...

National Donut Day Just Got Sweeter!

   I take care of a baby girl on Friday mornings, and today little Nettie and her mom had coffee and a donut waiting for me.  Then in the afternoon, I got a contract from Highlights!  It's for a poem I wrote for their baby magazine, Hello.
   That makes one, count it, ONE sale so far this year after 30 submissions--but it's a good one!  I'm always proud to sell a piece to the Highlights family.
