It's FINISHED!!!!!

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): All the Right Moves by OneRepublic.


*dances around wildly*

I have. Just. FINISHED the first draft of my newest manuscript! Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah baby. I am rocking this out like it's 1985. (This is my tradition by the way for every time I finish a first draft. I literally run around the house wildly, screaming and squealing and all around dancing it out (scared my family to death when I did it for the first time). It has become a time honored tradition, a holy ritual, a rite of passage. This is time #3 that I have been able to do it). So that song above? No accident. I do have all the right moves.

I feel kinda like this.

Or even this guy

Am I going to *ahem* myself to calm down to proper decorum? Heck NO!!!!


*runs around dancing and screaming*

Oh happy day! Things are going myyyyy waaayyy... (that's singing, by the way)...

Hmmm... how to give a hint without giving the story away? Okay, I've got it. Here are two clues, two songs that captured my story from very early on and have stuck with me through the whole writing process. The first gives the setting it is going to take place in (good for you if you know it), the second gives an insight into what the story is like (the word "princess" is the only one that does not apply). Happy guessing! And now, I'm off to squeal and dance some more.


*cranks up the music*

*dances off into the (figurative) sunset*

Fabulous! Party 'til you drop. Buy yourself something nice. Spoiled rotten is your name for the next week! :-)

Heather Zundel said...

Frankie - Hahaha. I actually do have video of it. Are you going to see it? Not any time in the near future. Me = way too much of a nerd.

PJ - I can feel you busting a move next to me!

Charlotte - Carried away? There's no getting "carried away" here! Thanks so much.

Shannon - Spoiled rotten is going to print off a copy and get right back into the game. There's not slacking off here! :D My dance fest gets everything out at once.

Steph Su said...

Wheeeee congratulations!! That is SO COOL and I agree with what others have said: party 'till you drop, cuz you deserve it!

Simon C. Larter said...

Congratulations on finishing, good lady. When I finally manage to finish a

novel, I will probably run around like a moron too, then take four shots of

tequila in succession and run around some more. Something to look forward

to, huh?

Enjoy the happy dancing!

Steph Su - Thank you! I think I did dance until I dropped. It was fantastic.

Simon C. Larter - It is definitely a rush. Can't wait for you to experience it for yourself. :)
