Proud, celebratory, and very, very tired

So, last night I got home, ate dinner, sat down at my computer, and wrote for 5 hours straight. That's the longest I've ever written at a stretch. I snarled incoherently at anyone or anything that tried to interrupt. I think I scared my dog. But I swore that I wouldn't stop until I was done with the first draft of my DSSS fic.

At 1 A.M. I was done! YAY! It's off to my betas now. Of course, they have to contend with a story that was written over a period of 6 weeks in 10 minutes dribbles and one 5 hour spurt, some of which hasn't even gotten a single read-through from the author. Umm, sorry, guys?

Sadly, I still had to get up before 6 A.M. So. here I am, as the title says, 'proud, celebratory, and very, very tired.' You would not believe the number of spelling mistakes I've had to repair in this short little entry.

Being a pro writer would really suck.

There's not enough coffee in the world to get me sitting at a computer for hours a day as my job.

Congratulations! : )

(Just, watch your hands and arms so you don't get problems with repetitive strain injury from so much typing--I have that, and it's not fun. And before I got it, I thought I was invulnerable...)

Thanks for the reminder - I'm careful about ergonomics, but with that many hours, it's still an issue.
