Day 30 *dances*  
I did it!

Now, back to my regularly scheduled life. I feel proud and happy and relieved and headache-y and like I might throw up. But it's finished. Now I can focus on the company Christmas party, friends I've neglected, cuddling with the family without a computer in my lap, scening and the holiday season at large.

Oh, and editing. Editing like WHOA. But some other day. Now I shall go collapse and then take my children and their crooked teeth to the orthodontist, because even if my job as a novelist is done today, my job as a mommy goes on.

WHOO HOO! *breaks arm patting self on back*

A special thank you to all of the people that sent me messages, comments and encouragement. That helped me more than you could possibly know. Big love to you all! *MUAH!*

LOL. You make NaNo sound SOOOOOOOO tempting. I'm in next year.


Regardless, I'm unspeakably proud of and happy for you.


You know I chose my icon with the utmost thought...

*loves you right back*

If anyone ever smashes my legs with a mallet so I can't get away from them, I'd want it to be you. LOL

You did it! I knew you could! Here, have a hot man in celebration.
Carrie Leigh: d/gcarrie_leigh on November 30th, 2009 09:59 pm (UTC)
Not just a hot man, he's the hot man.

I saw the icon and giggled out loud.

Thank you for putting up with my hysteria this month...

Oh, and editing. Editing like WHOA. But some other day.

OMG. I know. Me too. I don't want to look at the thing for awhile though. I'm still in the trenches of wanting to throw it against a wall because it's so awful. I'll try peeking in on what I wrote after Christmas.

Carrie Leigh: rock oncarrie_leigh on November 30th, 2009 10:05 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Hee!

Yeah. I've got to move things around and do some serious character development in the exposition so that the bad guy doesn't suddenly appear out of nowhere in chapter 22.

Mine's awful, too. Like the awfulest of awful. With crappy dialogue. And things happening out of sequence. But it's nothing that can't be fixed. Only...not right now.

Yay! We did it!
