Money in the bank

I have now received and deposited my signing advance check for Only Superhuman, as well as getting back my copy of the signed contract.  It makes it feel that much more real.  I created this concept and character nearly 23 years ago, I’ve been writing about them on and off for 18 years, and as of today I’ve finally gotten paid for it.  It’s not about the money, of course (though that’s nice to have) — it’s about the affirmation that this is really happening, that the deal is definitively done and the book will be published.

Plus it let me make use of my new drawers and folders to help me keep stuff organized.  I got to add a new thing to my “Original fiction contracts” folder!  Yay!

    Congratulations!! Very exciting to get a payoff after all the years of writing–both monetarily and emotionally :]
