In Which I Do A Dance

Hey. How are you?

Good, good. It's nice to hear that.

So, umm, Notice anything? Anything different?

No? I'll give you a hint. It's over to the right. Don't worry, I'll wait.




That's right! The first Draft is complete! wOOt!



325 pages




Ohhhhhh it's been so long since I've gotten to write "The End" on a piece that's longer that 30k. It feels good. I'd forgotten how good it feels.

In celebration I, of course, do a dance. A "The End Dance". It's very similar to the "New House Dance" of which I am frequent participant.


Here's a video of the "The End Dance". Feel free to copy and mimic



h/t to Joan Crawford for her awesomeness.


Peace out, friends. I will be back tomorrow, assuming I didn't hurt myself whilst dancing.

Whoo-hoo! Way to go, Fallen!! I'm doing the dance with you, girl (and feeling very inspired to get writing, myself!)

Enjoy -- it's gotta feel good!

Rock-n-Roll, Sarah! Way to go! That's fantastic news!

Joan Crawford said...

Yay! You go on and break sticks over your knees to your heart's content!

Anne said...

Your dance looked EXACTLY like Slater's dance, especially the break-stick move. But yours had the added benefit of the Pee-Wee Herman

Patrick said...

Woah woah, wait. Did you actually get up and dance? And I missed it? Damnit!

Dominique said...

Congrats. This is definitely a moment for a happy dance. :)

Teebore said...

Congrats! Now go dance your way through a warehouse, Kevin Bacon-style!

BTW, I love that you immeditately printed out a copy. I just printed my NaNo book for the first time last week, lol.

DL Hammons said...

Cha-Ching! Congrats. Bask in the accomplishment for a while!

K.L. Townsend said...

Ooooh. Look at how pretty and professional that first draft looks!

You so deserve that "The End" dance.

Falen said...

Thanks everyone!

Teebore - i don't typically print anything off right away, but i used it to surprise Anne - also i figured i can use it for line edits and whatnot in a month or so.

KL - i know! I was surprised by how HUGE it was, and it's amazing how once something gets past a certain amount of pages it looks "legit".

Al said...

Congratulations.

It is such a fantastic buzz to get to that point.

The best thing is that although there are a lot of steps along the way from here, each gives its own thrill.
