okay, technically, I got paid 16$ for some creative writing that was accepted by Dragon Magazine in 1984 or 5... and during 2004 I did make a little off the books contract money... but, basically, yah. that's it.

the 278 $ in 1988 was from a summer Burger King job (I wouldn't have filed except I wanted my withholding back). In September or October 1992, I got a pizza delivery job. In early 1993, I suplemented pizza with substitute teaching. In summer 1993, I got my first tech support job. In 1994 and 1995, I moved between other lame tech support jobs, in 1996 I was finally hired as a programmer somewhere... the rest is history, as it were :)

I didn't know you wrote for something for Dragon. Did it get published?

I sent them a bunch of miscellaneous magic item ideas once upon a time (I was like a freshman in HS). the two rings got published in some rollup of fan-contributed magic rings. so it was like 8 dollars a paragraph. of course, that was a LONG time ago, so the credit goes to my birthname, not my current name.

#117. Ring of Annulment and Ring of Distraction in the "Bazaar of the Bizarre" article. not much to speak of, really.

when did you work at tenet, 95?

I had a pang of envy that your lifetime is so much higher than mine when I read this.
