Published and paid author!

I forgot to share this here but I am officially a published and paid author! I pitched a piece to The Billfold about the cost of mental illness and they asked me send over a draft. I did and they liked it and said they were going to publish it. The day they put it up on their site they sent me an email with forms to fill out so they could pay me! I wasn't expecting to get paid, I was just happy to get a piece published. It's not going to be a large amount, from my internet research the check will be for $25-$50 but still, I'm being paid! Anyway here's a link to the piece:

The Costs of Mental Illness With and Without Insurance

I have plans to write a few more pieces about money and mental illness so if those pitches get accepted keep an eye out for the links.

That's really awesome! No matter how little you get paid, it still means you earned money as a writer!
