If Only They Knew How Great This Income Is

Strange things happen when I tell people at a dinner party that I "write" for a living. At first, they're excited...thinking they've just met a famous author, journalist, or screenwriter. "What have you written? Anything I might have seen or read?" I answer, "Maybe, but probably not. I'm not ‘that' kind of writer..." I can see disappointment sweep across their faces.
