First Paying Writing

During the course of my career, people have often asked me how I got my start in writing. Well, I learned at an early age you could get paid for it. As long as you're willing to do the work that goes with it.

So here, as best as I can remember it, is a facsimile of my first paid writing at age 6.

I HAVE YUR CAT.
I WANT $5 IN SMAL BILS.
