IWSG Question of the Day: How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal / finish a story?
As much as I would like to, I’m usually neck deep in the next book when one releases. And my track record for post NaNoWriMo has been horrid. Something always goes wrong in life and then I’m dealing with that as the challenge ends. Don’t exactly feel like celebrating after that.
Besides, I’m already reading through my word vomit to see what came out.
I really do want to have some type of little “hey, it’s done” type of celebration, but besides the fact that things have not worked out in my favor, I don’t know what. Go for a nice meal? Take a day trip somewhere? Treat myself to something nice?
It’s like with the meet this weekend (that I’m kind of being dragged kicking and screaming to). My anxiety levels for this are at an all time high, and if I make it through I’d love to celebrate with my teammates. However, I’m traveling to Southern New England at the end of the month so it’s questionable if it’s feasible between saving up and work I need to get done. That and the child has a game soon after I’m done.
One thought on “Celebration? #IWSG”
Ah yes, stress does have a way of making us forget to celebrate. For me, I think cracking open a Red Bull would be sufficient reward. Then again, I’d crack open one whether or not I had finished anything. 🙂
I hope life calms down and your anxiety levels decrease!
