The two most beautiful words in the English language are “check enclosed.”
— Dorothy Parker
As an ink-slinger who has sold words in the past, I know a little about what Ms. Parker is saying here: artistic satisfaction alone does not pay the bills. I have been away from this blog, focused upon selling what I write elsewhere; please excuse my inattentiveness of late – trying to raise my return on investment is currently proving to be a challenge. I will expand on this more, as time and energy permit, in future posts.
