Celebrate the Small things 28-11-14
This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So, what am I celebrating this week?
Winning NaNo! I just crossed the 50K line after writing just over 7K in one day. I think that's my biggest word count in a single day ever. I'm not saying they're good words, but they will be after a lot of revising. But first I need to finish the book. Although I did write the ending today. I usually do it earlier in the process, but I've been struggling to figure out what the ending will be. Then today, it all fell into place.
I have a new job too! I start on Monday as a Marketing Executive at the New Zealand Film Commission. I'm super-excited about it too. After working in cinemas for most of my career, and as a chef for the rest of it, I've never had a job with regular hours and weekends free. I feel like this new job will change my life in many ways. And I'm really looking forward to working with all those talented local film makers.
I spent a couple of days in Auckland this week with my best friend. She's starring in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the moment, and I got to see the show on Wednesday night. It was fantastic, and she was the toughest Mary Magdalene I've seen yet. But even better than seeing the show was just getting to have a chance to hang out with her again. We don't see enough of each other.
What are you celebrating this week?
