I Did It!

You may or may not have seen my confetti throwing excitement over finishing my revisions on Twitter this weekend.

There was lots of squeeing and sillyness on my part.  It feels SO good.  I worked really hard on this revision and I feel really really good about it.  I'm so excited about this story I can barely contain myself.  So, while it's in the hands of my trusty betas I'm going to try and focus on that Shiny New Idea I keep mentioning.  It'll give me something to do while I chew my fingernails waiting for their feedback.

Also, go check out Erinn's awesome first lines contest she is hosting this week.  Pam and Marquita are hosting a 100 followers contest too!  The contests are everywhere!  Don't forget to keep an eye out for our Ninja...he's bound to pop up sometime this week.

Tell me, what do you do to celebrate finishing a particularly brutal round of revisions?  Anything?  And what do you do to keep your mind off of that project once it's out for final feedback?

Erinn, you're welcome. :) And thanks.

Pam Harris said...

Yay!! So happy for you!! I have to work on the most difficult round of revisions this weekend, which is altering my ending. But once I'm done, you best believe I'll be celebrating with something of the fatty variety. I'm thinking cupcakes or a juicy burger--maybe both. :)

Holly Dodson said...

Pam, that's what I did with these revisions. Painful, but oh so worth it. The book is SO much stronger now. And cupcakes sound like the *best* treat ever for revisions. Good luck on yours!!

Congrats!

I celebrate by reading a book from my TBR list. It's my reward!

And, Lydia, that's exactly what I did!
