The Check Was In the Mail

I've been holding my breath until I actually got paid for the article in Your National Forests. Not that I didn't think the Forest Service was good for it... I think I'm still in shock at how much they paid.


If you can actually read that, go for it. I'll just say that yes, there is a number higher than one in front of the word "hundred."

I've been told that writers actually get paid in this range once they are established and credible. It wouldn't break my heart to enter that circle.

Uh, I think you just DID enter that circle, honey! LOL Congrats!

Now all you do is repeat this. Lather, rinse, repeat, repeat, repeat, and you use THIS credit in your bio when you query others. It builds on itself.

You can do this!
