Someone just bought my book. The cheapness of the price is irrelevant. I have sold a book, ergo: I'm a writer.
I have always wanted to say ergo.
Now I just have to find a way of manufacturing ways to slyly insert two more phrases into either my work, or a conversation. Ipso facto, and QED. Yes, I know exactly what they both mean but I've never had the courage in case someone shoots me for sheer pretentiousness.
Come to think of it I've never used IBID either. Still, one of my dreams has come true, so who knows what tomorrow will bring.
