Celebrate the Small Things!

Hi everyone, Jess here :)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!

This week I am celebrating the fact I finally have a polished first chapter! It's not much, but it's more than I've had in a really long time. Now onto the other 33...

How about you? What are you celebrating today?


  1. Congratulations! It's a step in the right direction :)

  2. One chapter at a time! Congratulations.

  3. Each small step adds to the giant leap. Well done and keep writing!

  4. I would definitely be celebrating a polished first chapter. Like Laura said, it's a step in the right direction.

  5. Getting the first chapter just right is hard (and worrying) so well done and best of luck with the rest.

  6. A polished first chapter - that's great :)

  7. Yay on a chapter one!! To me, they're the hardest.

  8. The first sentence, the first page, the first chapter - Excellent achievement.

    For me it's always the fist sentence. Bet things move on quickly from here! Celebrating with you!

    Best wishes, always!

  9. Congratulations! Keep at it and you'll get it done, all of the chapters. :D

  10. May the remaining chapters be a breeze to complete! Writer’s Mark

  11. Yay for your shiny first chapter. I don't think I'd have the patience to work on one chapter at a time. I have to get everything down on paper before I can even think about editing.

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot
