My first authorial payment ever arrived in the mail today. I didn’t chew on it or roll around on it, but I did press my cheeks against it to mark it with my scent. My hexicle at work has two acceptance letters and an extremely nice — wonderful, even — email appreciating Apology (Hi, Jessi!). We are going on vacation today, and I have carefully planned what I am going to write, and how many times daily I will twist the ladybug.
It’s not obsessive. It’s not, really.
