Yeah, Yeah, I've Been MIA, But...

*gasps for breath*

Must make it to the finish line. Side cramps are killing me. Feet are burning. Brain is about to explode.

So close... and yet, so far!

I have three scenes left to write. Three! Work is bedlam as we finish the last two weeks of school, but I can still meet my deadline of finishing Draft #1 by the last day of school if I put my head down and push through these last pages.

Throw Gatorade at me (wait, aren't I supposed to drink that?), tempt me with red wine and tiramisu at the finish--I don't care. I MUST FINISH!

And then I must celebrate before I delve into more research and edits. Any suggestions for the grand hullaballoo?

Good luck! When's the last day of school? I'm sure you'll get there :)

For celebrations? Ugh, I didn't even celebrate when I finished my first draft, I just went to bed. Lol. Maybe go out for a nice dinner and drink lots of wine?

Sari- We get out May 20th and I leave for California the next day so I have to finish! And I definitely like the dinner and wine idea!

YOU CAN DO IT!!!

I'm hoping to have my current first draft done by the time I leave for the US, but it's starting to look unlikely. I live in hope!

You can do it! Best of luck.

I'm rooting for you! Get it done!!

You still have a power weekend in there. You can do it. The kids can eat pbj's for a week. No harm.

Very cool to see the finish line at last--for this leg of the race anyway!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Go, Steph, go! Good luck. :-)

Vicki Tremper said...

Yay, Stephanie! You are almost there. You have almost completed the draft. You will finish it before the last day of school. You can do it!

And then celebrate with red wine and tiramisu and a night off from anything writing-related. Maybe a special date night?

Good luck!

Woohoo! Keep it up!

Suggestions? Get a massage. Writing is such tense work, then combining it with end-of-the-school-year stress? Yikes. What's better than a shoulder rub-down while one is celebrating victory? Aaaahhh...

You can do it! Go, go, GO!!!!

We don't finish school until the very last day of June, so I'll be thinking of you in the California sun!! :)

Keep going, you're almost there:) Lots of people seem to be in the throws of writing lately (myself included) and as a result we're all a little tardy as far as updating our blogs goes. But who cares, this is supposed to be a passion, not just work:)

Good luck on finishing both school and that first draft!

Dawn Simon said...

So exciting that you're almost there! Definitely take the time to celebrate when you finish! I'd include a nice dinner out in your grand hullaballoo. :)
