I love this idea, and have seen it before on authors. What a fantastic way to celebrate the culmination of years of work! I even know another one of my authors has made a similar promise to herself.
So here’s my question for you before the long holiday weekend: if your WIP or totally imaginary book’s publication day was tomorrow, what would you do to celebrate?
I’ve thought in the past about a tattoo to celebrate a life’s milestone, but I think I’m too indecisive when it comes to my personal appearance. I mean, I change my hair color with the seasons, and I have long hair precisely so I can wear it lots of different ways. And my clothes run the gamut from preppy to classic to trendy to stay-at-home (step)mom. I did have one idea for an image that has several meanings to me, but where would I put it?
No, too many decisions to live with for the rest of my life.
So I think I would go shopping. I like the idea of a small piece of jewelry that I could wear to remind myself of my accomplishment, that I could change if I wanted to wear something else. Something like a small diamond earring.
What about you?
In other news, I’m going to do my best to get through all my queries before the long holiday weekend, in case you’re waiting on a response from me. I’m hoping to read partials over the weekend, so will have responses on those for some people next week.
Have a great Fourth of July!
