Celebrate the Small Things 5-9-14

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?

I've had a very productive writing week.  I'm almost to the end of my revisions and the extra chapter I've had to add has been amazingly easy to write.  After revising for so long, just tweaking words, adding a few here and there, cutting swathes, I was concerned I might not remember how to write new stuff.  But I did.  And it was easy and fun.  The words just kind of fell out onto the page.  I love writing days like that.

I'm also celebrating my amazing CPs.  They have been working so hard to keep up with this revision.  I owe them all a huge debt.  That they are finding barely anything to comment on in the chapters is also a great confidence booster.

I had a great weekend away last weekend.  It was fantastic to spend time with my bestie.  It's something I need to do more often.

Work has been okay too.  I had a new chef start this week and he's great, and I have a potential head chef coming in Monday to see if he wants the job.  I have my fingers firmly crossed because my workload will drop considerably if I can get the kitchen under control and managing itself.  And that will mean more writing time for me because I won't have to work 50+ hours a week.

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. Not having to work 50+ hours a week sounds like an excellent thing to celebrate. I'm going into the busy season at my day job, so my weeks of not having to work 50+ hours are coming to an end. At least for a little while.

    So great to hear that you're almost at the end of your revisions, too!

  2. Sounds like you've made a ton of progress--congrats! :)

  3. Good for you! Writing should be easy and fun, even though it sometimes isn't. I hope the new chef works out. 50+ hours a week is brutal.

  4. I love the tweaking and I love the rush of composing! How delicious that you have the knack still (I can't imagine you losing it!) good luck with the Head Chef!

  5. There's nothing better than those writing days. It sounds like you had that and even more. Here's to that new chef.
