There.

*dusts off hands*

I have finished my new book. It is done. For at least the next three days, because as you know, a book isn't "done" until someone pries it out of your hands and publishes it.

I am not feeling up to conveying the wonder of finishing a book. Tired. Happy. Tired. Happy. Going to bed.

Mwah. Goodnight.

Hurra, and right back at you! Sleep very, very tight now, and then have a morning full of sweet citrus fruits and celebratory coffee and jittery joy. Heck, make that a month. You've earned it!

So impressed that you cranked out a book while living with an INFANT! I could barely shower.

Now, give it to that publisher so I can READ IT!

Congratulations, and sleep well...you certainly deserve it!

What a feeling that must be! Congratulations!

I'm with Megsie...

Congratulations! (but now I'm even more impatient to read it!)

:D

Hooray! I absolutely can't wait to read it. :)

*goes back to revising*

*revise, revise, revise. . .*

Congratulations!!! I guess now is the time to take a long sleep, wake up when you want to, and stretch those muscles as if squeezing out the last bits of stress and anxiety. That sounds like a great start to a good morning to me. I can't wait to read it!

Suzanne said...

Yay and congrats! You inspire me... managing to write with a little one at home. If you can do it, then I should be able to as well. You're awesome. Enjoy your well deserved sleep.

Liana said...

Yay! Congratulations! And of course, I can't wait until said book is in MY hands so I can read it! :) :)

Katie said...

Congrats! And is this ANOTHER one? Not related to Smoke and Bones? Wow. You really are a rockstar :)

What a feeling.

Oh, we know how it feels to finish a book! My biggest accomplishment so far- a professional length chapter in five days. Eh, pretty good when I've only been writing for a year!

Mae said...

By the way, that IS just the exploratory draft chapter. I've got some good stuff- just a little too Percy Jackson.

Hurrah and well done! I bet it's fab. (No pressure!)

Hope you're bathing in champagne and roses.
