Two Magic Words

A funny thing happened when posting yesterday's blog post, I was so eager to get back to googling these most fabulous snow globes that I forgot to say I typed two magic words, ie. The End.

Grim Glass Vein - first draft - 50,033 words.

Thanks TKT, the Apple is now long dead.

Oh man, you are inspiring me. Congratulations, that's super exciting! :D

Cate Gardner said...

I think you'll find it's the other way around. Still on my knees and not certain I can get out of the 'we are not worthy position'.

Simon said...

Woot! I think that's the right term... can't keep up with you trendy modern young folk :)

Cate Gardner said...

I get a stitch in my side everytime I try to chase them. ;) I usually grab a saying or two though as they throw things at me out of pity.

Aaron Polson said...

Yay! The End.

Best two words in the writer's venacular.

Cate Gardner said...

Indeed, indeed.

Alan W. Davidson said...

Yay, indeed! Well done, young lady.

K.C. Shaw said...

Woot, congrats! That's a robust wordcount indeed!

Natalie L. Sin said...

Congratulations! : )

Danielle Ferries said...

Jamie Eyberg said...

The End. Right up their with Accepted and Book Deal.

BT said...

Damn - Jamie beat me to it.

Congrats, Cate.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, everyone... Of course now I have to reset my word count meter to 0 for the second draft - gulp!

katey said...

Good god, are we bowing to each other? What a mad religion we've invented!

Good luck with draft two; I'm cheering for you!

Cate Gardner said...

It's wearisome on the knees but it keeps us humble.

Carrie Harris said...

AWESOME! So when do we get to read it? No pressure. Really.

But when? ;)

Jason M. Tucker said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to reach those words on my current project (aka - the short story that will not end).

Cate Gardner said...

Carrie, January 18th 2010. Not that I've set ridiculous deadlines for myself or anything. :D

Thanks, Jason. Good luck with the short that won't end, maybe it's a novella in training.

Jodi Lee said...

Congratulations, Cate!

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Jodi. Although I am back at the beginning so I think I need an extra few hugs.
