The first sale!
The indoor writer and handsome hubby celebrated in style over the weekend. The pictures give you a little clue as to what celebratory goodies were imbibed. I'm also partial to PINK bubbly and I do love those chocolatey seashells...hmmm. Oh, so what were they celebrating I hear you squeal? Last week she sold her first story to Take-a-break Fiction Feast. Yes, the indoor writer got a call from the lovely Nora McGrath at TAB magazine wanting to buy a story. No idea when the story will come out, but it's the selling that's important and besides we can celebrate all over again when the story is printed!
Now what should the indoor writer spend her first story income on? I read somewhere that with that first precious cheque you shouldn't put it towards mundane supplies, but instead splash out and buy something really memorable, like jewellery or a decorative object. Buy something that you can look at and remember the satisfaction and joy of that first sale. Any suggestions?
