Today marks the day that I feel I’ve become a real writer. No, not because I’m working on my fifth Maeve Sawyer book (for a total of seven, first draft novels sitting on my hard drive). And not for the other bazillions of reasons I should know I’m already a real writer. But for me, today it finally feels real because someone PAID me to write!

Granted, the amount I got paid isn’t enough for a down payment on a house. It’s more like, I could order pizza for the family, if someone else tipped the driver. But it’s a start!
To the excellent editor at Blogher – thank you for publishing my words. To my blogging and writing friends out there – when did you first feel like a “real” writer? Feel free to shout out in the comment section below, while I make a phone call. *grin*
