Just goes to show, it's not about the cash in your wallet. It's about doing what you love.

Interesting. Good to know that even great writers still had to keep day jobs.

Good fun - but I'm wondering if Henry Fielding earned $4000 rather than $40,000? I might be completely wrong, but the latter seems an improbably large sum for the 18th Century!
