Bust out the See's, y'all!

I passed my word count goal (75,000) on my current manuscript! Yay!!!!!!!

I have no idea how many words I have left now.

And I don't know what sound effect to use for that.

I know for dang sure that I just earned some chocolate and a pedicure, though.

Go, you! I'm so impressed, especially since I'm kind of idling in neutral right now.

I must be doing this backwards, because I've eaten the See's but don't have a manuscript to show for it.

CONGRATULATIONS on doing things in a better sequence!

Every single one of my posts is roughly 75,000 words, so I know EXACTLY how you feel.

Except my stuff is complete pish-posh. That part is different.

And I did notice the "same blog post title" thing, and didn't think a thing about it except, "I love Melanie! She reads what I write!!"

Melinda said...

WAHOO! I'm totally up for See's and a pedicure, when should I meet you!? :D

I think I saw Tam Tams in Target the other day. I'll get them and eat them in honor of you!
