@kitten_witawip How did you avoid paying taxes on a private purchase? I just bought a car from a coworker, and had to pay the sales tax when I went to the DMV to transfer the title.

Professional writers should not write for free. It sets a bad precedent and does a disservice to all writers. And the argument that people should write for "exposure" is bullshit. I built my editorial career by moving up the freelance chain: student newspaper (paid) to alt weeklies (paid) to national publications (paid). If you think your writing is worth something, never give it away for free.

I chopped all my hair off recently, so I'm going to wear a blue nightgown and carry a demon baby doll and be Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby. My punny contribution: wear a revealing dress. Carry a dollhouse in one hand and a baseball bat in the other. You're a homewrecker.
In the three years I lived in New York, the landlady only raised the rent once… by $10/month. Unfortunately, she was also crazy in less charming ways.
