Celebrate the Small Things Hop

vik - small things 2Week 3 here at Celebrate the Small Things! If you are new to this blog hop, all you have to do is sign up on the linky below if you want to join! If you already have, then go around to each blog that signed up and congratulate or just say YAY to everyone and their accomplishments for this week! (Full instructions at our host Vikki’s post here!)

Writing related: I made it to 40K big ones this past week! I feel like I am closing in on my story and it will be the most loveliest day of all days when I complete that first draft and have a whole flowing manuscript! It will still need to be hacked up with my red machete (also known as the evil editing pen) but at least it will be a finished piece. My first rough draft of a real novel! I get so excited to just thinking about it!

I also decided to put myself out there even MORE and plan to attend the Midwest Writer’s Conference in Muncie, Indiana this July. I am super nervous just thinking about sitting in front of an agent and pitching my story, but worrying about that is for another time and day. I even think my wonderful friend Vicki Orians will be joining me at the conference, so at least there will be some friends to hang out with too!

As far as non-related accomplishments go, I got some cleaning done around the house and did somewhere around five loads of laundry. Our furnace started acting up and my wonderful hubby was able to fix it, so no extra bills! The furnace lives to breathe out hot air for another day! Oh, and I joined the smartphone world with a Samsung Galaxy S 3 – as if I needed another device to distract me from writing!

What did you celebrate this week? Let me know in the comments or join the hop and I will find out on your blog!

  1. Congrats again on the 40k! You guys will have a blast at the writer’s convention – so jealous! And welcome to the smart phone world. You can kiss your attention span goodbye! πŸ™‚

  2. Each time someone says they finished their manuscript I feel I must speed up and finish mine already. Congratulations and best of lucks with the writer’s conference. Always helpful to have your own handyman, hahaha. But watch out with that phone. πŸ™‚

    • Yes for sure ..so many friends are finishing up their drafts or editing and I just want my story to be complete and to share it with someone!!! So frustrating to wait until I actually have it written out πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t know which is more impressive, the 40k or the 5 loads of laundry – either way, you’re Superwoman as far as I’m concerned! πŸ™‚
