Today fortune must have been smiling upon me, as a trio of what I would call the dying breed of English gentlemen happened into the pub and I got chatting to them about my writing. Much to my delight they actually approved of me having an education and my ambition to write. One chap kept rambling on about the love of writing and how it should be spread about, so in I approve of his attitude, the world needs more people like him. I showed him a copy of my novel and he spent a few minutes looking it over and causally announced he would like to buy it and offered a tenner. Needless to say I took him up on it.
My dad thinks I should frame the money, but I think I'll spend it.
