A recent conversation with a writer friend got me thinking about the first time I got paid for a piece of writing. For me it wasn’t a piece of fiction, but I didn’t really mind because, being non-fiction, it was also for something approaching respectable money!
I still have the cheque.
Which is exactly what this recent conversation was about – sticking cheques in a frame just to say “Someone bought my work.”
If you’ve been paid for a story of yours, what did you do with the cheque?
