I'm getting my 2009 tax information together and I'm thinking of all the things I wish I could use as a tax deduction from my writing "job".
Okay - this is a joke in and of itself since in order to reference it as a job I would need to have earned income from it, but still, I'm a dreamer.
So things I would like to declare on my 2009 taxes IF I was a paid writer:
$36.29 in Itunes purchases for inspirational playlists
$26.03 Ibuprofen liqui-gels
$158.08 Tim Horton's Iced Cappuccino's for those "mornings after"
$159.00 New printer that doesn't go through ink like a bad meth habit
$92.00 Ink for meth-addict printer before I went Office Space on it
$14.95 Ink for new printer with mild aspirin habit
$42.00 Paper for printing rough drafts
$2.99 Box of preferred pens for editing
$540.00 Year of internet service for research, access to Itunes, and AW
$125.86 Wine (aka - cheap drunk)
$24.99 Bottle of good tequila (aka - writers block)
$44.85 Jonas Brothers 3D concert movie tickets
$NOT GONNA PUT IT HERE.00 Jonas Brothers concert tickets (research people, research)
$366.00 Take out for nights I'm too busy writing to figure out dinner
Yeah... writing is fun!
