Short post — I want one.

Longer post. I can’t afford to buy one right now and unlike Steven Colbert I can’t beg for one on television.

So here’s the deal I made with myself.

I can buy myself an iPad when I can pay for it entirely with monies earned from my writing. Not from my day job, not from tax overpayment returns and not from any gift cards, but solely from money paid to me for my writing.

It could be a long time before I get one.
