Wow. I'm going to get paid to write reviews! It's £25 a shot plus tickets for the shows. I'm VERY pleased. I think it'll be about once a week. W00T! First show this Monday! FIRST TIME I'VE BEEN PAID TO WRITE SINCE 1997!

Meanwhile, my review of Every Good Boy Deserves Favor at the National is up on my (own) blog. It's the Stoppard/Previn effort, worth £10 but not that exciting.

Should I tell the students that wanted to use my writing and not pay me that I ain't gonna do it? It would actually mean I was in "print" rather than just on an online blog ...

WHO'D EVER THINK I COULD GET PAID TO BLOG!

Excellent! Congratulations.

As far as the students go, I might check to see what you are selling. I doubt you can let them use what someone else is paying to run and I'm not sure how much extra time you have to give them anything else.

Congratulations! I remember how much I loved doing reviews a few years back, and I wasn't even getting money (just free tickets and cheap dates to take wordknitter to).

Good for you. :)

Holy crap- just thinking of the finances here...

If your average ticket to a show was $15 (sorry, I don't know how to conjure a pound sign here), then you're up $40 on an evening's entertainment- if your average ticket was more, then even moreso!

Excelsior!
