If you were published

This morning I was imagining that I finished a novel and subsequently had it published. This led me to ponder what my reaction would be to achieving one of my dreams. Would I quit my day job to write full time? Would I stop writing, scared I could never match myintial success? Would I call everyone who wronged me in high school and rub it in? I am interested to hear some of your thoughts in the comments of this post. I will pick out some of the interesting comments and post them on the front page. If you have already been published, what was your reaction?
