Oh, the relief! The “incredible lightness of being”! Not having to work on the novel at breakneck speed every night after spending the day thinking and brainstorming. Now I can sit back and look over the mess I wrote. And I can get back to reading what I was reading before I started reading about plot and structure. I can get back to writing reviews and reflecting on what’s going on in the world. But first I’m taking a couple of days to chill and watch funny videos and re-charge myself.
Expect a post or two or three by the end of the week. I should be through celebrating and patting myself on the back by then. Or at least find a few moments to sandwich some real blog posts in between the glasses of champagne and self-congratulatory words of praise combined with much sighing over the certificate for completing the 50,000 word challenge ahead of schedule. Ah, does it get any better than this? (Well, actually, I certainly hope so. I hope I haven’t peaked. That would be sad, too sad!)
