Our projected pay has doubled… but minimum wage is still far away

Published by at 8:52 pm under Comedy,Navel-Gazing,TWPL

We did some calculations on the back of a napkin and concluded that the author of Things White People Like received an advance of 2.33 cents per hit.  Assuming that our advance earned us the same amount of money per hit, our projected pay per hour of website work has doubled to $1.75 over the past three months.   At this rate, we might reach minimum wage by the time I have my degree.  [JACOB ADDS:  Barely.  Won’t your parents be so proud?]

CAVEAT: There are so many reasons that you should not take this 2.33 cents figure too seriously.   Please do not attempt to use it to negotiate with your publisher.
