Living on Rice and Ramen

Ran into someone I hadn't seen in a couple of years. She asked me what I'd been up to. With a big smile, I told her my novel had been published.

She smiled back, happy for me, and said, "So you're no longer a starving artist?"

Big laughs.

"I'm still starving," I said. "I just have a book published."
