$2 a word. I’d be thinking, “You meant 2 CENTS a word, right? Because that’s what everyone considers to be ‘competitive pay.’”

Even after the money showed up in my account, I’d feel like I was a part of some underground operation and half-expect the Feds to break down my door. Too good to be true.

Congratulations, though. It’s the type of thing we writers all dream of. Nice to see it actually happen.
