A Little Doohickey

As you can see I DID IT! 50,071 words and I am done. That little sign is the official doohickey you can upload once you paste in your words and get them verified that you really did more than type randomly for the past month. (Although at times it felt as if I was simply typing randomly.)

First I spent an hour online avoiding writing the last few thousand words.
Then I cried as I was writing the final scene.
I was mourning being done the damn thing plus the scene was heart wrenching, too.

Today has been an exceptionally good day all around.
It was birthday meeting day at AA.
I was privileged to see one of our home group get his one year cake.
We are a very small group but today we were nearly triple in size.
Every day one of us is sober feels like a miracle.
I am very thankful though, that drinking is not one of the ways I need to celebrate being done the book!

Brava! Bravissima! and Woo-HOOO!

Just color me Granny-Smith green with envy. You've accomplished something that I have never had the dedication (or courage) to do. I've been threatened and cajoled to take my various writing to press, and have come up with a hundred thousand excuses not to. So I stand in awe and wonder. Congratulations!
