Spending your imaginary advance

JJ the Goblin says it's OK to blog brain fluff, thus refreshing my confidence in my ability to blog. Brain fluff. I can do that.

Today, however, I've come over all Proper Blogger and actually have a question which might be remotely interesting. There's a fine old wrangle going on at http://rejecter.blogspot.com/, basically The Rejecter vs Unpleasant Anonymous Blogger aka Anon 7.55. Hie on over there if you wish to follow the main thread of the argument. My question, vaguely arising out of their grandstanding, but requiring absolutely no knowledge of that to answer is: (drumroll)....

Your novel has just been accepted for publication (woo hoo!) for an advance of $5000 (hmm). What would you spend that money on?

Hi there!
Sorry this isn't about your post, but I'll get back later with a reply to your real post.

Yesterday I was going to ask you if I could link you on my blog as "McHussy." I thought that was pretty funny. Then I got an email (to my REAL account that has my real name and all) from some creepy guy with a small dog--he was really EWWW--wanting to link blogs with me. I think it was just spam, but still. Did I say EWWW?

Anyway, I linked you as McAussie instead. Not as funny. I'll try to think of something more clever later (or if you have something....)

Have a great day! Will come back here later.

Why, I'm sure he just wanted to discuss flower arranging and embroidery techniques for antimacassars.

But, um, yes. Let's keep the hussy bit quiet.

I'll link back!

5K? Hmm...... I'd hire a slick web designer to pimp my website. I'd hire a graphic artist to do a mock up of my idea of how the book cover should look.

I'd buy some new clothes for my book signings, and take a trip to NYC to visit my editor/publisher.

With my $5000 I would buy beer and chips. I am easy to please.

Josephine, how sensible. Conduit...

As for me, I'd buy a lap top so I could write anywhere and everywhere. Husbad would probably make me feed what's left into the mortgage beast.
