Nearly finished

This is Margaret Daley here and I'm excited. I only have a few thousands more words to write before I'm through with my Love Inspired Suspense for December called Christmas Bodyguard. I should have that done by the end of this day. I'm trying to come up with something to do to celebrate. I thought about getting a double dip ice cream cone (cookie dough) or going out to eat. But I've done those things before. I wanted to do something different. What are some of the things you do to celebrate a special occasion (and believe me finishing my rough draft is a special occasion to me)? Any suggestions for me? If not, I guess I'll be forced to eat another double dip ice cream cone. Oh, well, someone's got to do it.

  1. Hi Margaret,
    First of all....YAY!!! That IS exciting news, for you and the readers both *wink*

    One of the things my mom, sister, and I tend to do if we are celebrating is treat ourselves to a movie. Sometimes in the theater, sometimes just to rent and relax at home.

    That would be something different....and if you really wanted to splurge, you could eat the ice cream cone too! It's not everyday you finish a draft!!
    Congrats,
    Hannah

  2. Margaret,
    I'm glad to hear you're trucking along with a new book. Good for you.
    I usually celebrate the end of a new novel by taking my husband out to eat. After that, it's house cleaning time. How does it get to be such a mess? My heroines never have two weeks of laundery piled up.

  3. I treat myself to a pedicure! :) And boy oh boy do my toenails look terrible right near the end of a book. ;)
