I just finished up Lethal in Old Lace, fifth book in my Consignment Shop series and turned it into the editor. Yippee!!!!
Hi, Duffy Brown here.
Finishing up a book is really a big deal for me. They’re long, they takes months to write and getting the mystery to work out is not easy to pull off. So when I finish I think I need to celebrate.
Actually, what I usually do first is take a big nap. Then I think I need to celebrate this achievement. It doesn’t have to be all that big but something. Right now I’m thinking two cookies. I originally thought one cookie but my daughter talked me into to as, face it, one cookie is never enough.
Cookies you say? Well this diet thing is such a pain so cookies would be amazing. Then I nap and realized I had dreams of fried chicken. So, I’m thinking maybe two cookies and fried chicken, another big no-no on the diet scene.
I know, I know, my celebrations are food. Some would probably do a nice bottle of wine or shop or take a trip. A trip would be good, as long as there was good food involved. I love to eat. I wish I were one of those people who eat to live and not live to eat but unfortunately no. I love food. I guess that’s how the forever diet is part of my life.
So my question to you all is, What do you do when you finish a big project? Do you celebrate? And what do you do? Is it special food? Shopping? A trip?
Good luck on your next big undertaking.
