After a couple of self-published articles and a few very hyped blogposts I was contacted by an alternative publsiher. She became all flames and fire when she heard about my background and started to represent me immediately. If it was her being pushy, or my raw talent I do not know, but fairly soon I started to earn pretty more money writing than before.  Enough to buy a tent so that I did not have to sleep on benches anymore.

When my mini-vacation was over we had become really good freinds and I had even managed to steal a kiss from him!

The upcoming week I did not get much writing done at the library. I just sat there staring dreamingly into the screen with a happy smile on my lips…..
