When To Quit The Day Job

I ran across this formula by Robert Asprin (I believe it’s him, if it isn’t my deepest apologies and I will correct). Quit the day job when:

You have 5 books published (each doing better)
You have 3 books under contract
You have 150% of your annual salary saved.

Depressing, ain’t it…most of my “extra” money goes to promotion/advertising. I’m going to Archon next week which will cost more than anticipated and I’m uncertain whether the exposure will help me.

Sigh. It’s Friday, I have critique tomorrow, but…

OTOH, my PRISM Winner pin came today, yeah!

Love to all,
