I did it!!!!

I did it!!!!

I wrote a 50K word novel in 30 days!!!!!

It ain't pretty. It's actually pretty darned ugly! But it was fun and it's actually really rewarding to FINISH something.


And at the same time I'm starting something... I've been seeing a new boy. He's cute and sweet and quirky and a great communicator - he agrees whole-heartedly with my "better out than in" philosophy. So I am cautiously optimistic.

Woo hoo! Sounds like a great start to your week. Congratulations on the writing. Best of luck with the boy. Can't wait to hear how things progress.

YAY!!! And for the record luv, it's not that ugly, I'm not done yet but what I've read so far had me cracking up.

Congrats on finishing the story!

Congrats on the cute, fun boy!

And what is "Better out than in"?

Angela - "Better out than in" is my philosophy on communication. I'd rather just lay everything on the table than swallow my troubles like opium cakes...

And J agrees. We've already had a couple uncomfortable "discussions" that ultimately gave us a better understanding of each other.

Erm... is it dangerous when two over-analyzers hook up????

Hey, where can I get my hands on the novel?

Good luck with J! I think it CAN be dangerous to mix the power of two over-analyzers but balance is key. :)

Congrats on the book!! How many years is this? I know of two.

And the boy...this is good. I hope and wish for the best!!

Congrats on completed the novel. It's nice that you're starting a new chapter, so to speak, with J.

Now -- time for a whine.

No fair! Jaylee gets to read the book!
