Yeah! Yeah! And more yeahs! I've finally finished a complete second draft. I typed in my last words of a new scene and looked over at my husband and said "Let's celebrate!" My husband is off right now on his scooter to buy that imported Baskin Robbins (expensive but yummy).
We as writers need to celebrate these small steps. Actually, they're huge steps. This second draft ended up being a humongous rewrite after taking my online writing class. So now I have a new beginning, a new middle and a new ending. Wow. It's almost like a new book! It's okay, you can laugh at me.
I'm excited about the book though. It's got some good stuff. Maybe after another 2-3 more drafts, it might be ready to see the agenting world. Crossing toes.
More big news for me, we're moving apartments so I'm busy packing too. We picked out wallpaper (it was either wacky wild or plain beige- I ended up with plain beige- bla).
I'm also taking on a new job too! So tomorrow I'm packing up all my personal stuff in my classroom.
So, how about you? How do you celebrate those little milestones in your life?
