A question was brought up of how we celebrate completing a book. Which is a darn good question!
I know some authors who have set celebration techniques--one friend goes out for a fruity drink after each book's first draft is done. Another celebrates when the book comes out with a release party.
Sadly, aside from once in a while going out for a nice dinner, I don't have anything. I've thought about it before and I really want to add some sort of celebration to recognize what I've done. Usually it just gets shoved to the first editor and I jump into the next project. Like this past Monday night when I finished the draft of an upcoming novalla, sent it to her, then ran and started working on edits for another book.
I believe celebrations and rituals can be very comforting and helpful--but somehow I can't seem to develop them for myself!
Here's hoping this blog hop gives me some ideas--if you have any, feel free to add them here!
