Bright and early this morning, I found courage.
I asked about compensation for my work...to be specific, I questioned whether I might receive a tiny Fortune on a column that I've been writing "for the love." I do love writing that column. But it was time for me to make a statement. Am I a writer who's just writing for the fun of it? Or am I writer in the business of writing?
I swallowed hard and named a price. And the publisher said, "Yes, yes, of course." It was that easy.
So, ask for what you deserve. All it takes is a little courage to become the Queen of the Jungle.
