Hello. I Love You. Welcome to My Party.

I finished my book.

Okay, not entirely true. I finished this DRAFT. I still have ridiculous problems to fix, like the fact that I decided halfway through that X should be Y and the whole thing should be set in a world made out of cotton candy.

That last bit isn't true, but I wish it was.

Anyway, in honor of the finished draft, I'm throwing a party. You should come, girly man. That statement will make sense after you watch this video.



This means that we shall be back to my usual long-windedness, starting tomorrow. Thanks for bearing with me in the meantime.

I like bears. They should come to my party.

Congrats on writing "The End" which in all reality was really just "The Beginning" :D

I'll take any reason to party. I'll supply the hard liquor and twister if you bring the beer.

Lisa and Laura said...

Congratulations on finishing draft 1. We're currently whipping our WIP into submission. There's nothing like realizing that the entire second half of your book is broken. Bah.

Kelly said...

Congrats on finishing the first draft!!
Girly Man! Where do you find these things?!

My word verification is merpre.
Is your first draft about a merpire?

Donna Gambale said...

Congrats! I happily join the party -- that's something worth celebrating. I should be having my own party within the next month, and you're invited! Afterwards, we can sulk and scream and pull our hair out over revisions together.

Candice said...

Yeah for you! I'm editing my third draft right now. It never ends!

So I was trying to decided which workout I wanted to do this morning, and this just sealed the deal. Bollywood dance video for sure! You wouldn't believe what an awesome shoulder workout the "W" up and down arm move is.

Yay for finishing!! You go, girl!

Congrats on being done with draft #1. All great books start with that!

Anita Saxena said...

Congrats on your first draft! Best of luck with editing.

Tere Kirkland said...

Twister and beer? Now it's a party!

Congratulations on finishing your first draft! I just finished one myself so I know the feeling. But as Marybeth says, it's really just "The Beginning". Or it will be for me after NaNo. ;)

Yay for you!

Lizzy Mason said...

Congratulations! It's so very satisfying, isn't it? :)

Hurrah! *confetti* *streamers* Oh, what the heck. *bears*

Whoops, better make that *sophisticated vegetarian bears*st

Natalie Whipple said...

Welcome back, I look forward to your long-windedness. I got a lot of time to kill these days.

Cate Gardner said...

I so wish the world was made out of Cotton Candy too...

Congrats on writing the first 'The End'.

Um, this has nothing to do with your post, but did I notice your smiling face in your follower list? You are the only person I know who is following themselves. Although for you, I guess it isn't all that strange :)

Congratulations on finishing the draft. I'll be expecting cotton candy at this party!

Carrie Harris said...

Thanks, everybody!

I'd like to write a book about a merpire, Kelly. Actually, I've been thinking about that a lot lately.

And Sherrie? That was... uh... my evil twin. She follows me all the time.

Actually, I'm lying. I have no idea how I ended up following myself. That's pretty sad. Thanks for pointing it out. ;)

I can't see YouTube at school, but I'm sure it's hilarious! Congrats on finishing your draft!

Mariah Irvin said...

Yay for first draft finish-age! Without a first draft, there is no book (or so I'm told) so be proud!

Where do you find this hilarious videos?

Natalie L. Sin said...

I know that video. Youtube keeps throwing it at me when I'm looking for homoerotic Korean Boy Band videos ; )

K.C. Shaw said...

Woot, congrats! Now you can join Nano, already in progress, right? :)

Nadine said...

Congrats, that's awesome!!

Suzanne Casamento said...

OMG! Where do you find this stuff?!?! Hilarious!

Congratulations on your draft. And the cotton candy.

Kelly H-Y said...

Congrats! Did the recent notice of your untimely demise spur you on to finish?
