I was reading an article the other day, where a lot of authors told people their "top ten tips for writing" - here it is if people want a look: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/feb/20/ten-rules-for-writing-fiction-part-one

And one of the suggestions was to treat every completed page like an accomplishment.  I think this is very good advice - it keeps me going on my stuff, certainly - the knowledge that you're one page closer, or another 100 or 1000 words done.  So, long story short, this is a thread to celebrate the accomplishments - if you just finished a short story or a poem, finished your tenth or fiftieth page, or (props to those who have) their whole novel, I thought we could have a place here where we could congratulate each other and all - I know it makes me feel good, and I'm all for sharing the love. Grin

(If you were wondering whether this was leading me to self-importantly announcing one of these accomplishments, you'd be right, and once again I'm discovered as the slightly narcissistic person I am  Roll Eyes )
And with as little ceremony as possible - I have just completed my 100th page, and I'm about 2000 words short of 50 000.

I look forward to hearing about other people's little triumphs - it'll make me feel better about sharing my own Cheesy

Thanks - I think the main thing to do was just sit down and write....sounds so easy, but actually hard if you're into procrastinating as much as I am!
Just gotta make sure you love it, I guess.

I am pretty sure I am into procrastinating about as much as anyone. For every sentence I write I will spend about half an hour or more playing stupid card games. It makes studying time consuming to say the least. Actually writing is so much worse. Smiley
