|Don't know if this makes me a hypocrite or a little less of a raving lunatic

I sold a story for $1. I didn't give POD rights when asked because I wasn't going to get the extra $2 for those rights that they were offering to new writers. But I sold a story for $1. I like that story. Chicks dig it. |
And when Paypal gave me the money they took out 34 cents.
So the difference between "FUCK YOU EXPLOITIVE ASSHOLES" and "Cool. I sold a story and I consider these people legitimate and here's the link." is 66 cents. That's 16 minutes in the drying cycle at the laundry on the corner.
So fuck Mima'amakim, mimaamakim, mimamakim. Whatever. And all the rest of the free magazines that aren't staffed by well meaning idiots that I know. If I can't get my 66 cents, I'm not doing it.
