I waited until the bitter end, really. I just now hit 50,018 words and called it done. Total 108 pages.

Now it's time for that lovely work to rest.

My plans for celebration have not panned out, of course. I am debating whether to bring one of my champagne bottles with me or just wait until I get back. I'll think about it tonight.

I leave for San Jose tomorrow morning.

Congrates and So sorry!
I am so sorry to hear what is happening in your life right now. Virtual hugs coming your way right now!

As for the BOOK.... YAHOO!!!!! I just got the book you recommended. I just got to the page where you commit to writing x amount for 30 days to reach 50,000. You made it well past that! YEAH!

One of the books I have been writing has 2 fairly good chapters. I am going to commit to finishing that book. But already I face the blank page and wonder what to write. You are an inspiration to me and the goal of finishing this within the month. Since I have given 30 day notice to the newspaper I should soon not be feeling what is stopping me right this minute... utter exhaustion. I am trying to figure out if I should sleep now, go throw the route and start fresh tomorrow. And I have 2 articles to write by Monday. Even though we are on Spring Break the college paper needs the finished articles to get the paper out by the Monday when we get back. At least my last article was publish and some even say it ranks among the best of what has been in the paper so far. I cringe because I know this isn't meant as a compliment, to our paper or to me. Oh well.

Judith, thank you for showing me it can be done! :)
One more hug!

Re: Congrates and So sorry!
It's a silly challenge but it made a difference to me. I hope it does the same for you! I haven't opened that file since March 31. I hope that when I get back to it I will be able to do more with it.

Thank you so much for your nice words. And congrats to you, too, on the articles! I know you'll do well with those.

Starting at the back and working up.

I apologize that I didn't see this post! You deserve major congratulations! Well done!!


Admiringly, Jackie (and you hung in there even with pressing family difficulties, too! Hooray for you!)
