And Who Said Poetry Doesn't Pay!?

I got my payment from Barnes and Noble yesterday!!

Woohoo! A whole $40!

You know what? It was the best $40 I've ever earned. Actually it was $40.92. I proceeded to buy a mocha frappucino and a vanilla latte for my love. Ah, yes, there went almost a forth of my poetry earnings. But let me tell you... overpriced coffee has never tasted so damn good.

LOL, that was my payment for that book signing I did like... a long ass time ago. I'm actually getting paid to do something I love. Is there anything better? No. No there is not.

Got my contributer copies of Reflections yesterday in the mail too. I had almost forgotten about that little publication. Yum. Another one for the good ol' CV.

So yesterday I was riding on the waves of my ego. It felt damn good to be Katie the Poet, as it usually does. Today I'm wrestling with a new poem, that originally was a short story but I'm working it into a poem. The next manuscript is growing quickly, and I'm excited for what may come next.

On that note: something I found recently.

This is totally cute.

Anyway that's it for me today. Time to go back to being boring old Katie the... woman.
