A First

Now I know what it is like to hold a check made out to me for something I have written. Incredible. I am a published, and paid, author. It might be just one little poem, and a very small check, but...I did it!

This is making it harder to "wait" until a better "season" for me to get serious about writing again. Success is a heady thing. At least I know that sometime in the foreseeable future, there is another poem coming out in another issue...and another pay check.

And now I get to spend the first income I have ever made doing something I like. I'm gonna blow it on completely ridiculous and useless things -- like stamps or dies for my cuttlebug. Yipee!


  1. I'm ridiculously happy for you and proud of you...what's a cuttlebug?

  2. Julie, pray tell, where/when did they publish you? I'd love to see! :)

  3. I echo Michelle and would love to see your work, Congratulations!!

  4. Congratulations and I do hope you nurture the writing desire as soon as you can because you for sure have The Talent!
