Let's Celebrate

Take a look at that face. It's his first taste of something sweet. Can you even remember how that felt? Can you remember your joy when someone gave you something totally unexpected?
I remember when an editor accepted my first story. I screamed.
I remember when an article of mine was published on-line. I called my husband and daughter in to stand around the computer when it came onto the screen.
I remember when my first story appeared in a book in Barnes and Nobles. I won't tell you how badly I acted then.
But it was sweet. Just as sweet as a cupcake at a first birthday party.
I know the writing path is filled with many such occasions.
I hope you are ready to celebrate as I am with you.
The blog community is a blessing in so many ways. We can not only encourage each other, share tips about writing but be a participant in everyone's parties of success!!!
Who's party will we attend this week? Are you ready? Someone out there will send out that first submission; someone will get that first acceptance; or someone will finally hear from an agent or get a publisher to sit up and notice.
I've got my candles ready. Start writing your invitations because it could be you!

How fun! It's not going to be my party, but I'm coming anyway!

I hope you get a "party" this week. If so, I'll wear a glittery pointy hat and toot a horn for ya!

I have this vision of being on "The Today Show," sitting across from Matt Lauer, discussing my wildly popular first novel. This vision may also be fueled by my intense desire to ask him what he is thinking with that haircut of his but still.... :-)

So encouraging! It's good to remember the breakthroughs rather than the breakdowns... :-P
