For Creative Writers Everywhere…

Today I opened one letter in my mail to find a cheque for $25 for something I’d written πŸ™‚

Then . . . I opened my car insurance bill 😦

Needless to say, the first doesn’t cancel out the second!

And, I’m sure there must be a way to turn it into a story.

I hope your day brings more incomings than outgoings πŸ™‚
