After several years of trying and failing (good practice for being a writer, no?) I have made it to NaNoWriMo Victory. It was totally worth every anguished moment and proves Salon co-founder Laura Miller is wrong.
Yes, it feels pretty sweet right now. The hangover will set in tomorrow morning when I realize that I have two works in progress, one that is finished at 80K but still needs extensive revision and the other, just over 50K that I'm pretty sure has a plot I took from one of my daughter's cartoon shows. Maybe Spongebob, maybe Las Tres Mellizas. But for now, it's a frigging party over here. Okay, it's laundry day, but it's PARTY LAUNDRY DAY.
So, question - how do you celebrate your achievements, or do you, like me, have trouble even acknowledging them without a sarcastic aside? (yeah, right.)
