Yay, Me!!


I am so very, very excited. I've finally completed the first draft of my short story. Big deal you say? Yes, it is! You see, other than a few flash fiction pieces, this is the very first bit of fiction writing that I've finished! Feels a little dorky to admit, but it's true. First draft of the novel is 3/4 of the way complete, another possible short story (maybe a novel, who knows? I don't) has some good progress, but this short story has the dubious distinction of being the first to be completed. So Yay, me, indeed! Now I've got to edit the sucker & get it sent off. Then it'll not only be the first thing I've finished, but the first submission ever! I don't even care (much) if it gets accepted or how well it does in the contest. Today I'm just grateful for this "first."

I think this calls for a happy dance. Wish I could do it as well as these guys!

Congratulations! I'm doing a Snoopy dance for you right now. I don't know where all the little yellow birds are coming from.

The first leads to the second and then the third. I know the feeling. Enjoy it.

Finishing is critical - for once you've finished you know you can, and then you have confidence to do more! Yay you!

Congratulations. You can't control what happens when you send it so you have to celebrate your own achievements. And submitting is BIG. Reward yourself cause you are on your way baby.
