The Good Trip: A Story
By Ursula K. Le Guin. Le Guin is renowned for her spare, elegant prose, rich characterization, and diverse worlds. This is the first story I ever got paid for; the second story I ever got published; and maybe the thirtieth or fortieth story I wrote. I had been writing poetry and fiction ever since my brother Ted, tired of having an illiterate five-year-old sister around, taught me to read.
At about twenty I began sending things off to publishers. It kept systematically coming back. April in Paris was the first genre piece—recognizably fantasy or science fiction—that I had written since , when I wrote an Origin-of-Life-on-Earth story for Astounding, which for some inconceivable reason rejected it I never did synch with John Campbell.
At age twelve I was very pleased to get a genuine printed rejection slip, but by age thirty-two I was very pleased to get a check. Professionalism is no virtue; a professional is simply one who gets paid for doing what an amateur does for love.

До выхода было метров тридцать. - Я оплачу тебе билет до дома, если… - Молчите, - сказала Меган с кривой улыбкой. - Я думаю, я поняла, что вам от меня .
