IWSG March

Hey, hey. It’s time for IWSG in March! The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a network of writers and we post about our insecurities and writing on the first Wednesday of every month. Come check out the group right here
This month’s question:

How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/ finish a story?

Umm…I’m not sure if I do? I’ve given up on two projects in the last year alone, so I’m climbing the mountain on an outline and trying to sort of write a creepy short story that I keep putitng on hold because I have a limited amount of time to write. 
But at the end of a story or finally finishing that chapter or finally figuring out the key to a character’s journey–how do I celebrate? 
I breathe a sigh of relief and move on to the next thing.

  1. Hmm, I wonder if shelving a novel for three years and then reworking parts and editing it counts? Because I did that once, right after college with the book I wrote my freshman year. It didn't helped too much, but I felt better. 😀 Other than that, I'm always planning to rework something, but I haven't actually done it yet. Haha.Pearl is great. ^_^


  2. I love 'define old'. There are MSs from years ago I'd never blink at again. But 'middle-aged' ones aren't as bad and show hope. It's amazing how many ppl revamp things and get them sold (I'm noticing this on this month's IWSG.)


  3. We need to celebrate more! Maybe smaller things, like acknowledging it and being happy and maybe taking a night off to watch Netflix, when it something smaller, but finishing something bigger, like a first draft, deserves a treat, I think. I celebrate when my books come out, but I need to celebrate finishing stuff more. It's a big deal! You should give yourself a treat after each finished outline. 🙂 I gave myself a treat when I finished formatting. LOL!


  4. Our celebrations are so short-lived, aren't they?But that's how I celebrate, too, unless it is a novel, in which case I get myself a well-deserved drink or two.
