Expanding and Contracting

I got my first contract in the mail today. (Some of my other stuff has paid, but there haven't been contracts before now.) They're paying me £50. While this is not enough for me to begin living an expansive lifestyle, I'm pretty excited. ^_^

I'm excited for you too!!! Contracts somehow make it for real, don't they?

Candace said...

Yes! And the price isn't bad, either, for a 2,000 some word story! :)

ARM said...

I agree - the price is definitely good! I'm just so happy for you. I love hearing about people getting their stuff "published." It gives me reason to keep writing.

WHOHOO!!! That's like $100, isn't it?

Candace said...

Amanda - I need to use the inspiration to make sure I sumbit some more stuff. :)

Tshsmom - I was thinking $85ish but the currency converter I just found says $97.45. I suppose it will depend on the rate the day they issue the check, LOL! Or should I say cheque? :)

Brilliant. OF course it'll be 50c after banking commission... ;-)

That will buy Munki a good knife.

Hey there, Girlfren! Snap! Go to Cameron's page. Lookie there. He and James are gonna be on HGTV. w00t!

Now that the housekeeping is done, could you please explain for me just what on GAWD's globally warming earth you are going to do with fifty Ls with a line through the middle of them.

Well I just read your booklist...I like it! I like it! So you've read The Outlander Series huh? I'm a big fan of Jamies!!! :-)
I found your blog from Gawpo's list!

Congrats to you Tall Chick. Let me know if you want me to proof any of your "work".

ARM said...

Yes! Use that and submit lots more of your stuff! I can be your own personal cheerleader if you want. But I won't wear the outfit...sorry.

chikken said...

Congratulations! That is excellent news! WAHOOOOOOOOOO!

Candace said...

TG - HA! Good point. :-P (point - heheh!)

Gawpo - I SAW that! How very freakin' cool, eh? I loved the post about frenetic cleaning for it. ^_^

Vicc - Hi, and welcome! Any friend of Gawpo's is a friend of mine. ^_^ Yep, I'm in the middle of the series. I was carless when I finished #3 and so had to start on Mr. Darcy takes a Wife until I could get to the library for #4. So now I have to finish THAT first. ^_^ It's starts out with lots (and lots) of sex and angst and goes from there, LOL!

Ldbug - you are so right! ^_^

Logo - thank you for your vote of confidence. ^_^

Egan - thank you! I'll probably take you up on that.

Amanda - LOL! No outfit required. Though I'm afraid that's going to disappoint Egan.

Cheekendrah - thank you! :)

ARM said...

Let's see...you have a proofreader, a personal cheerleader, I think I saw a post earlier where Egan agreed to be your admin assistant. Not too shabby, Tall Chick!!

Winters said...

Bravo C.

'Tis the first of many, no doubt.

Candace said...

Amanda - you're right! I'm set! ^_^

Winters - thank you. I do hope you're right. Maybe even a "real" piece eventually. ^_^
