A Professional First

I've been mired in the hell that is E3 prep (last week Thursday: 8 a.m. - 1:30 a.m.; Friday, 8 a.m. - 3:30 a.m.) But a little ray of sunshine broke into my life last Thursday. A bit of RPG writing I did a while ago (a long while ago, in retrospect) was published: Eden Studios' Worlds of the Dead, featuring a bunch of "deadworlds" for people running the All Flesh Must Be Eaten zombie-themed RPG. Mine is the Arabian Nights-themed deadworld, and I'm impressed both by the content of the rest of the book and the quality of the production.

I got my comp copy in the mail Thursday night, bundled with a nice little check. This marks the first time I have received payment for writing fiction.

I will cash the check, but I'm going to have the teller give me the crispest, cleanest $1 bill she can first. I want to save the first dollar I made following my dream.
