Do you make writing deadlines? If so, do you reward yourself after making it?
I’m about to finish what I hope will be my first published book, and I’m already thinking of how I’m going to reward myself. Like I’ve posted on my blogs before, my deadline is on my 30th birthday — 16 days away, (PANIC)! The fact that I will be able to say, “I wrote a book,” is going to be awesome, but what else do I get from saying that, what is my reward? Since the editing process and finding someone to want my book, it probably won’t be published anytime soon, I’m in need of something to keep me going, and able to write my second book.
As I write this, I’m curious as to why saying it isn’t enough for me? Is it the fact that I want people to see me in a different light, rather than just a daughter, a wife, and sister?
What did you do to celebrate finishing your first book?
