Celebrate The Small Things – Endings and Beginnings

vik - small things 2

Celebrate The Small Things is a blog hop wherein we post our celebrations (big and small) every Friday. Thanks to our host VikLit for this awesome hop!

It’s the last Friday of the month (time flies by so fast!) and I’m here to celebrate:

  1. Getting moved successfully. Moving is hard, packing and unpacking, getting used to new surroundings. I definitely miss the old place but such is life. We have to keep moving and things are only new for so long before we get used to them.

  2. I finally finished Draft 2.5 of my novel. Yes, I’m calling it 2.5 because I’ve gone and tinkered with it so much. I’m also announcing my draft as “done” after blogging about it for the last two months. Of course, it’s far for from being actually finished as I face the road of more revisions ahead. For now, I’m setting it aside and will probably come back to it after Camp NaNoWriMo.

  3. Another award! Thanks to CeeLee for the nomination. Watch out for my post sometime soonish!

  4. I reached over 100 blog followers sometime in the last week. Thank you Blogs with < 100 Followers, hosted by the wonderful people at A-Z Challenge, for being there from the start. You guys rock! (And if you haven’t signed up for A-Z yet, it’s not too late to sign up! They’re coming very close to 2000 bloggers).

  5. Four more days till Camp NaNoWriMo. Got some outline done but will probably be pantsing my way for the rest of it. I’ve met some wonderful people in the process of gearing up for it and together, we are taking this one crazy adventure. And that, I think, is one of the best things to celebrate about–the people we meet and the relationships we form along the way.

What are you celebrating this week?

  3. Moving is always more challenging than expected. Well done on eveerything you’ve achieved this week.

  4. You’ve been up to a lot! πŸ™‚ Sounds like things are going well.

  5. Moving can be hard but it is also the opportunity to start some things afresh. Hope you settle in quickly. Well done with your revisions too. Thanks for visiting my blog today.

  6. There’s lots for you to celebrate this week! Congrats on moving, finishing the draft, the award, and more followers! Good luck with NaNoWriMo! πŸ™‚

  7. Hey good for you with much to celebrate in one week. I can still remember packing and leaving my country Cameroon for Belgium. I cried so much on getting here for l had to unpack not just my stuffs but l had to shed a lot of my ‘other stuffy’ stuffs if u get it. But today, a year later, l can celebrate the move too.
    Thanks and see you in 3days. All the best to us the #AtoZers

    • I know what you mean. Moving to a new country is esp hard as you have to decide what to bring and what to let go but I think it’s a wonderful learning experience although for a while, it was hard for me to get settled too. Good luck with A-Z!

  8. Congrats on your accomplishes for the month! I’m participating in NaNo next month too, hopefully it goes well for me and for you. Good luck!

  9. Moving is the worst. I guess the only good thing is getting rid of junk, de-cluttering. Congrats on making headway with your book! Have a nice weekend.

  10. I’m celebrating:

    having my first day off in nearly two weeks.

    Having had a chocolate shake at McDonald’s.

    It’s supposed to be sixty degrees tomorrow!

    And I’ve got a new book to read.

    Still, my week was less exciting than yours, I figure. Except you didn’t mention a chocolate shake. There’s no week so great that a chocolate shake can’t make it a little better.

    (Just to be clear, I have NOT been in any way influenced by The International Chocolate Shake Cartel, and they are definitely not holding my family hostage until I recommend chocolate shakes on every blog I visit.)

  11. There is no fun to be had with moving, but at least you’re done. Congratulations on Draft 2.5 (funny).
