|08:35 am - Get happy|
Hey there! It's been a while....
The past week in particular has seen me writhing on the floor in full-body denial of the Work-Thing that Other People want me to do (it is awful, it is so awful) and pounding away at the original project that has been dogging me for several years. I can report that the writhing will continue until People realize that I am not the person, but more importantly... I have a completed draft of the Texas-project.
123,845 words in draft (at least 4000 to be relatively easily cut, I suspect). Two weeks to let it rest untouched, and then I'll do a reread/revision with a scalpel and a glass of wine or two. But anyway, I finished a draft. Finally.
So let's celebrate with two awesome songs:
**Judy Garland singing "Get Happy," my go-to song for cheer.
**Jill Scott singing the Bill Withers classic "Lovely Day."
And one extra, in a slightly different vein to wake you up:
**the English Beat singing "Ranking Full Stop".
May your Friday be wonderful, full of accomplishment, dancing, and happy things. :-)
Whoo hoo for Fridays, for writing, for Judy Garland and for wine! (But especially the writing!!!)
Yay for YOUR writing, F, and for wine and Judy G and good things to come. Happy Friday!

Huzzah for the writing! Hugs for the annoyances!
Thank you, A, thank you and hugs to start the weekend right!
Hope for the best on all counts! And thanks for the music.
My own personal get happy song is John Boutte's "Accentuate the Positive"
. Not sure that's your kind of thing--sorry if not! But hope the happy is with you!
I am a Bing Crosby "Accentuate the Positive" purist, but that's a fine version too. :-)
Cheers and good thoughts for your weekend!
Congrats on the draft! I know what an accomplishment that feels like. :)
Thanks, Chase, thanks and good cheer for your ongoing project too. :-)
Happy Friday! Weekend ahoy!
Well done on finishing the draft!
I was almost thinking this day would never come. ;-)
Cheers and thanks, T, and a wonderful weekend for you!

Sings along, if really badly off-key.
Hurrah hurrah! [turns up the music for you]

Oh, I could use the champagne. ;-) [shares with you]

At last, at last, at last... ;-)
