So, here's the thing. Writing is my passion, it's exhilarating, it's delightful, yes, yes, all that. OBVIOUSLY.
One of the reasons I love writing, though, is that it's so darn CHALLENGING.
Which means I look like this about half the time I'm working on something (which is, you know, half of All The Time.)
So. Hard work deserves rewards, right?
I don't know many writers who don't reward themselves with chocolate, a stiff drink, a favorite TV show, or similar after a few thousand words drafted or revised...
And when One was ready for queries, I treated myself to this beauty of a poster, which now hangs on the wall of my writing cave:
|The Wasp is almost dead center on the poster. Definitely a Sign.|
If any other really really good things were to happen with this sweet manuscript about misfit half-superpowered kids *ahem,*
I'd buy myself this sweatshirt. Because, to those of you who have read it, obviously:
I'd give one away on the blog, too. I'M JUST SAYING.
So, writerly types - what are your rewards to yourself for work well done? Anything you'll buy yourself when you hit that next big milestone?
