Published again

I just found out today that I got another article accepted for publication in Pyramid.

I am pleasantly surprised, since I hadn't specified game statistics for this character, and I thought they might be required.

This whole getting-paid-for-my-writing thing really gratifies me. I feel very proud.

It is abundantly clear, though, that I make far more money for far less effort as a senior computer programmer than I could ever make as a game writer.

Therefore, I try hard to keep any money I make from gaming articles very strictly in the category of "mad money", money that I don't have to budget or spend sensibly. This is harder to do than I might expect, though. I end up being acutely aware of how finite this mad money is, and therefore I end up hoarding that money-I-don't-have-to-hoard.
